Tired of waiting for a theater to say “yes”? In this workshop, you’ll give yourself the “yes” by learning everything you need to produce you own play on any budget, starting at zero. Week one will cover how to write a budget-friendly play, where to find a space, as well as who you’ll need to hire and how to find and hire them. Week two, participants will look at budgets, contracts, preproduction, and marketing. And in week three, participants will work as both playwrights and producers in rehearsals, from opening night to closing. By the end of this workshop, you’ll know exactly what to do and, just as important, what not to do to get your play in front of an audience. Many playwrights who have taken this workshop have then produced their own plays successfully.
