TRU PRODUCER BOOT CAMP

Genre: Other
produced by Theatre Resources Unlimited and featuring producers Richard Frankel, Cheryl Wiesenfeld

 
As a disheartening number of shows are closing, Theater Resources Unlimited (TRU) opens up possibilities for tomorrow’s productions with an all-day intensive workshop about crucial aspects of raising money for theater on Saturday, January 24 from 10am–6pm at The Players Theatre, 115 MacDougal Street (below W. 3rd Street), NYC.

It’s a tough economy, no doubt about it. All the more reason why people need support and the skills to go about the business of producing. Attendees will acquire basic tools and information that will help them to function effectively in these times and the better days that are surely ahead. From networking techniques to legal requirements and effective business planning, plus a wealth of first-hand experience from more than a half dozen producers who are currently active in the Broadway and off-Broadway worlds, TRU promises an informative, empowering and inspiring day.

Admission is $175 ($150 for early registration before 1/19); $25 off for members of TRU. Payment by check may be mailed to Theater Resources Unlimited, 309 W. 104th Street 1D, NYC NY 10025. On-line payment by Paypal or by credit card is available at www.truonline.org/store.html. Pre-registration is available by emailing trunltd@aol.com. Applications are available at www.truonline.org/BootCampApp.htm.
