Producing School

with Steph Connell & Guests

This performance has taken place in the past

Tue 25 – Fri 28 January 2022, 10.30am – 4.30pm each day

Whether you’re interested in producing for other people or self-producing your own work, we all need a hand and to compare notes sometimes. Facilitated by Steph Connell, this four-day workshop will give participants a whistle stop tour of the basics of producing for theatre. Topics will include:

  • How to talk about you and your work
  • Figuring out what you need and who to ask for it
  • Project planning
  • Budgets
  • Fundraising
  • Touring
  • Marketing
  • Pitching your project

Whilst we don’t pretend to have all the answers, Steph and her invited guests will share their experiences so far and what they have learnt along the way.

This workshop takes place over four consecutive days. Participants should be available to attend all four days and should come with an idea of a project that they would like to make happen in the future.
