An Introduction to Creative Producing. A workshop with everything you need to know about putting on a show.

This acclaimed one-day workshop is ideal for early-career producers who are thinking of creating a show; be it a scratch night, showcase, rehearsed reading or a large or small-scale theatre tour. It is also suited for actors, writers, directors and artists looking to start a company or produce their own work.

An Introduction to Creative Producing is a practical, anecdotal and accessible guide to the ins and outs of putting on a production including:

- Budgeting

- Setting up a theatre company

- Pitching a play

- Understanding contracts

- Casting

- Making a production diary

- Choosing a theatre

- Contacting venues well as a chance to talk about your potential project (if you have one)

The workshop looks at everything needed to put on a show or event or start a production or theatre company, from the local pub, to a national tour, to the West End of London. It's for those already working in the industry and anyone who has ever felt a desire to create theatre or events and promote them.  The workshop looks at the pros and cons of commercial production, setting up a theatre company and local/national touring.  It will also be useful to anyone who has considered investing in theatre, or is just curious about what a Creative Producer does!

Previous participants at the Theatre Royal, Drury Lane and RADA have included students, amateur actors, producers, directors, theatre administrators, film producers, arts council officers and writers.

"An excellent course - Nick combined solid helpings of advice and experience with sprinklings of anecdotal experience, which was a great combination."  Part Suspended Blog.
