A PRO Masterclass on Steps for Potential Producers and Writers to Get Answers

Do you have a question about marketing, contracts, budgets, investor-seeking, human resources, or any of the myriad other subjects a producer needs to understand to get their show on the stage?  Is there one question, the answer for which is keeping you from getting to the next step of realizing your show's potential?

Completely instigated by the specific needs and questions of the people in the room, Meredith will provide consultation and guided discussion that aims to create real solutions for the issues you are facing now. What do you need to know to take your show to the next level? By focusing on the specific needs in the workshop, the class as a whole will absorb fundamental knowledge about producing for theatre inspired by the knowledge you need right now.
