We’ve shared the secrets of the rehearsal process, the ways an actor becomes a character, and how a director approaches into a play. But the magic we see onstage would not be possible without a lot of creative thinking on the business side. Gain a better understanding of the theater you attend by diving into the other half of the business. You’ll learn what it takes to budget and keep a nonprofit theater running, how the pros market a production, and how and why the regional theater developed into what it is today. As you explore this rarely seen side of the theater world – and put your newly learned skills to the test! – you’ll be sure to gain a new appreciation for show biz.
As one past participant raved, “A superb introduction to what it takes to make a theatrical production happen…I’m going to see plays in a new light.”
