In order to fully understand the theatre industry, one must not only understand what occurs on the stage, they must also know and understand what happens behind the stage. There is an entire crew of people and activities that must come together before a production even reaches a rehearsal period or the stage.
In this 6-episode series, you will learn the basic understanding of theatre management and producing. This will involve the study and completion of basic theatre management elements such as the drafting of production budgets and employment contracts, creation of production calendars, and the study of intellectual property law, copyright law, etc. Students should come away from this series with the practical knowledge of how to produce and manage a production from beginning to end. In addition, the series will close with a presentation day for students! You will be asked to present a production packet at the end of the course to your fellow students. You will choose a play and include in the packet production contracts, a production budget, a production calendar, and a tech rider. This is essentially everything you need to produce this production, outside of marketing and advertising. You also have the option of adding a non-profit organization plan to this packet.
*Payment Plan available.
