A PRO Masterclass for Producers, Writers and Performers on Steps to Create, Budget and Self-Book Your Show, Theatrical Concert or Cabaret

Led by expert Jason Cohen

Do you have an idea for a small show that you think would work great in regional theaters, cabaret spaces or small national tours - and have no idea how to make it happen? Feeling overwhelmed by the details that go into self-producing a small show (how to book it into theaters' seasons, promote it, pay musicians, negotiate contracts with theaters, and everything else it entails)? In the PRO Masterclass, Jason Cohen will share how he realized Great Balls of Fire from an theatrical concert idea in his head to doing 170 performances coast-to-coast in just two years, playing an impressive roster of regional theaters across the USA including Florida Studio Theater, Arizona Broadway Theater, Delaware Theater Company, Seven Angels Theatre, Penobscot Theatre Company, Bucks County Playhouse, Dutch Apple, Surflight, Sierra Rep, Gretna Theatre and more.


Jason will cover topics he was only able to find out from repeated trial-and-error, including:

  • Understanding financial structures
  • Developing relationships with theaters
  • Crafting pitch materials
  • Self-booking into regional theatre seasons
  • And more from his time producing Great Balls of Fire as well as additional concerts and theatrical productions. 


The event will conclude with opportunities for in-person attendees to socialize and network.
