On August 20 from 5:00pm to 7:30pm, 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.

Our basic Foundations Class will be taught by R. Erin Craig of La Vie Productions (Himself and NoraStalking the BogeymanMr Rickey Calls a MeetingAusten's Pride, Academy, Right Before I Go benefit in October 2017), and is open to all aspiring producers, artistic directors and self-producing artists. Our advanced Master Class will be taught by producers Jane Dubin (The Prom, Tony winning The Norman ConquestsFarinelli and the King, BandstandPeter and the Starcatcher and An American in Paris;  plus Absolute Brightness of Leonard Pelkey, The 39 Steps, Ann; upcoming: Fingersmith) and Jennifer Isaacson (Moulin Rouge!, An American in ParisHedwig and the Angry Inch starring Neil Patrick Harris, ANN, The Norman Conquests; off-Broadway The 39 StepsBeebo Brinker Chronicles).). Master Class is open to graduates of Foundations Class, and a limited number of producers with a high level of experience. 

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, and due to COVID isolation, both classes will meet virtually via Zoom, two nights every month for 5 months. The cost for Foundations is $295 ($29.50/class). Master Class costs $425 for 9 sessions, and has a highly competitive submission process. 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.
