Theater Resources Unlimitedpresents a producer boot camp, Weekend Intensive for Showcase Producing, on Saturday and Sunday, February 26 and 27, 2011 from 10am – 6pm. The workshop will take place at The Players Theatre, 3rd Floor Loft, 115 MacDougal Street (below W. 3rd Street), NYC. The fee is $295 for non-members ($250 before February 19) and $240 for members of TRU ($195 before February 19).
Thinking about producing a showcase? Are you a writer or actor who might be self-producing? Wondering if it's worth it to apply to NYMF, MITF, Fringe or the other festivals? Worried about where you're going to get the money, and how to track it once you have it?
Faculty will include entertainment attorney Jonathan Herzog, general manager Robert Sherrill, producers Patricia Klausner, Meredith Lucio and Mike Roderick, financial advisor Bailie Slevin, publicist Katie Rosin and others. Special keynote addresses will be given by critic Michael Feingold, "The Village Voice", and producer Ken Waissman ("Grease", "Agnes of God", "Torch Song Trilogy").
This is basic and not-so-basic training for anyone thinking about producing a showcase now or in the future. The workshop will cover a range of topics from "Why Are You Producing This?" to "What You Need to Know Before Asking for Money" all the way to planning for the next steps beyond that showcase. With stopovers at marketing, budgets, casting, union codes and contracts and more.
The boot camp is specially geared for those producing at the reading and Equity Showcase level, with particular application for anyone who plans to produce in 2011 summer festivals. Cost is $195 for non-members ($250 before February 19) and $240 for members of TRU ($195 before February 19). There is a special Festival Discount price of $200 before February 19 for anyone producing in the upcoming summer festivals, including Planet Connections, Midtown International Theatre Festival, FringeNYC and NYMF.
