Publicity is essential for the success of every show starting with the call for auditions to the closing night. In this workshop you will learn the different methods that we use to “get the word out” and “get bums in the seats” including print, TV, electronic and web media as well as social media.
The Producing workshop was held April 28, 2012 - Producers are the organizing force behind a production, ensuring that the lines of communication stay open and operational. This workshop covered the fundamentals of producing a show from the initial stages of the process to the final production meeting.
The Stage Management workshop was held May 26, 2012 - Have you ever wondered who is running the show? This workshop gave paritcipants a glimpse into the role that puts you in the driver’s seat and makes you an essential part of the creative process from beginning to end.
The Lighting workshop was held on June 23, 2012. Part of the illusion of theatre, lighting helps set the mood of a show. From the passage of time to the special effects that can be accomplished with lights, this workshop gave participants an overview of how lighting is utilized in the theatre to create “magic”.
