On August 11 from 5:00pm to 6:30pm, we will be hosting a free meet-and-greet info session about our Producer Development and Mentorship Program, the only theater production program to offer in-depth instruction from accomplished producers at an affordable price. Prospective applicants will have the opportunity to learn from and network with our commercial producer instructors. You will also meet and hear from successful program graduates at this Intro evening.
The 2022 Fall FOUNDATIONS CLASS will be led by Blair Russell, a Tony nominated producer, developer, educator and lover of theater and live performance whose experience ranges from fringe festivals to Broadway shows (Slave Play, Sweeney Todd off-Broadway). This course offers a basic but thorough overview of the major business aspects of producing, taught in context of team projects that offer practical application of the information shared, and help strengthen collaborative skills.
The 2022 Fall MASTER CLASS for Basic PDMP graduates and other eligible candidates will be led by Broadway producer Jane Dubin (Is This a Room, Dana H., The Prom, Tony winning The Norman Conquests, Farinelli and the King, Bandstand, Peter and the Starcatcher and An American in Paris; plus Absolute Brightness of Leonard Pelkey, The 39 Steps, Ann). An in-depth and personalized approach to producing focusing on your own project, including a private consultation.
PDMP’s purpose is to give members the knowledge and resources to become commercial theater producers, non-profit theater producers and/or self-producing artists. There may come a time in every theater artist’s life when you need to self-produce a show and create your own opportunities, and PDMP aims to provide the tools for that occasion. Our program teaches necessary skills such as developing a business plan, raising money, marketing and putting together creative production teams. For more information, here is the link to the full program description, and application.
For the upcoming term, both classes will meet virtually via Zoom, two nights every month for 5 months. The cost for Foundations is $295. The cost for Master Class is $425 for 9 sessions, and has a highly competitive submission process. We offer discounts for college students and we also offer financial aid. The informational session on August 11th is completely free. Reserve using the red ticketing box on this page.
