Theater Resources Unlimited (TRU) presents the TRU Producer Boot Camp: WEEKEND INTENSIVE FOR NEWBIES, basic training for producers, geared to those producing at the reading and Equity Showcase level, and with particular application for participants in upcoming summer festivals, on Saturday, May 30 and Sunday, May 31, 2009 from 9:30am – 6:00pm at The Players Theatre, 115 MacDougal Street (below W. 3rd Street), NYC.

“In the current economy, it’s more important than ever for people to be smart about producing,” says TRU president Bob Ost. “To help assure that our business will survive these tough times, TRU feels it is essential to offer the information and guidance that early-career producers require to make theater happen, and happen successfully.”

A faculty of experts will cover topics ranging from “Contracts, Options & Underlying Rights” to “Marketing & PR Basics.” Keynote speakers will include Broadway-level producers who will offer insight, experience and inspiration to beginner producers. These speakers will include:
- Kristin Caskey, vice-president of Fox Theatricals ("Thoroughly Modern Millie"," Legally Blonde"," Caroline or Change", revivals of "‘night mother" and "Death of a Salesman").
- Cheryl Wiesenfeld ("The Exonerated", "Elaine Stritch: At Liberty", "In the Continuum", "Legally Blonde", "Dirty Rotten Scoundrels", "Caroline or Change")
