Next Friday through Sunday (March 13-15) the League will be partnering with the Commercial Theater Institute to present the first Chicago Producing Intensive. This three day program has been presented by CTI in New York for almost 30 years. The Chicago producing intensive has been designed with Chicago theatre in mind. I would like to encourage you all to come to this great program if you can.
It is not ONLY about commercial producing, many of the skills and techniques that apply to commercial producing apply to non-profits as well. The topics are wide ranging and include: Legal Aspects of Producing, Production Budget Analysis, envisioning a producing plan, co-production agreements, how to develop work, etc., etc. It will be an interesting, informative and inspiring three days. There are fourteen topics covered in all. There will also be plenty of opportunity for socializing and networking.
There will be 21 speakers and panelists representing an extraordinary array of experience in the American theatre. They include some Chicago professionals, such as: Stuart Oken, Elephant Eye Productions; Roche Schulfer, Goodman Theatre, Beth Rohlmeier, Broadway in Chicago; and people from New York, such as: Tom Viertel, Scorpio Entertainment; Jack Viertel, Jujamcyn Theatres; and Roy Gabay; Roy Gabay Productions.
We have extended the early bird price of $250 for League members. This is almost half off the regular price.
