On August 20 from 6:30pm to 8:30pm, 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.
Our basic Foundations Class will be taught by R. Erin Craig of La Vie Productions (Himself and Nora, Stalking the Bogeyman; Mr Rickey Calls a Meeting; Austen's Pride, Academy, Right Before I Go benefit in October 2017). Our advanced Master Class will be taught by Jane Dubin (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; upcoming: Fingersmith) and Rachel Weinstein (Tony winner for The Ferryman and Dear Evan Hansen; also Disgraced, The Heiress with Jessica Chastain, An American in Paris; upcoming: Jagged Little Pill). Master Class is open to graduates of Foundations Class, and a limited number of producers with a high level of experience. You will also meet and hear from successful program graduates.
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.
Our Foundations class meets one evening of each month for 10 months, and the cost is $295 ($29.50/class). We plan to offer discounts for college students and we also offer financial aid. The informational session on August 20th is completely free. Reserve using the red ticketing box on this page. Master Class costs $425 for 9 sessions, and has a highly competitive submission process.
