Creative Producers in January. Yep.
I’ve been posting on Facebook. This was an answer to someone who trained as an actor and wasn’t sure what steps to take with his new theatre company. We’ve another ‘Introduction to Creative Producing’ workshop next month. And he wanted to know more. He couldn’t afford an MA. So this is what I wrote.
“Our course was the brainchild of my MA course tutor who pointed out my strange and unusual experience! (He appears on video!) I’ve done the Stage One workshop (twice actually) and it’s brilliant if you are looking to produce commercially or in the West End. I was very critical of the industry in the letters page of The Stage for having no training for producers but things are better now. This day probably won’t answer all your queries (although our alumni are BRILLIANT!) but it should absolutely show you where to go and what to do next!”
