The Sunday Giveaway: A CTI Workshop

This week we are not giving away a free ticket to a Broadway show.

This week we are giving away a ticket to an event that could help you have your own Broadway show!

On Friday, March 15th, the Commercial Theater Institute is holding one of their more popular seminars entitled, “Producing Workshops, Readings and Showcases:  A Practical Approach”.

And one of you is going for free!

I get asked about producing readings, etc. all the time, and I’m thrilled that CTI is tackling it.  I don’t think there is anything more important that teaching how to maneuver the many embryonic stages of developing a show.  Producing a reading or a workshop may not be the sexiest thing in the world, but it’s where all shows start.  Yep, West Side, Les Miz, A Chorus Line . . . you can bet their Tony Awards that they all had readings.  And good producing at the beginning gave them a proper foundation to build their success.

So how to win?

Like I said, readings aren’t sexy . . . but maybe they could be?

I know a lot of you have attended readings and the like over your years in and around the biz.  What’s one tip you’d give if you were teaching this course?  What would you tell producers-to-be about producing workshops, readings, and showcases?

Share your tip in the comments section, and you’ll be entered to win a chance to hear a whole lot more tips!

Break a something!
