Do This First . . . Before Anything Else.

Readings are one of the first action items I give to TheaterMakers wanting to get their show to the next stage.

And by now you’ve probably heard me talk about “Pizza Readings” (AKA “Kale Readings” for the healthy amongst us!)

But what about the next step?  When you take your reading out of the living room and into a rehearsal room?

First thing you need?

A checklist . . . to remind you of all the things you need!  (Checklists are a great way to make sure you’ve got everything covered . . . in every area of your life.)

Here’s a starter checklist you can use for your next reading to make sure it is a big ol’ success, and it helps get you to the NextStage.
