The theater was put on hold in March 2020, but hope is finally on the horizon: though uncertainties persist, at least we have an effective vaccine and have seen the tentative return of live theater. So start moving ahead now with passion, a plan, and an awareness of navigating our current world in transition. We invite you to acquire some basic tools and crucial information to help you overcome your money shyness, navigate the roadblocks, and effectively reach out to supporters. From pitching techniques and presentation skills to legal requirements and business planning, plus a wealth of first-hand experience from a half dozen producers currently active in the Broadway and off-Broadway worlds, we promise you an informative, empowering, and inspiring day.
