Event description
This is a day for theater makers to connect, exchange knowledge, and meet others with the same goal -- producing quality theater.

About this Event

Sessions will include:

Set Design and Building

Costumes and Wigs

Props, Masks and Puppets

Social Media/Online ticket sales/Credit Card Acceptance

And More—we will be adding other topics, so stay tuned

Who is this workshop intended for?

Directors: Learn some tech basics and—perhaps more importantly–how to dialogue with others to create a comprehensive production.

Board members: gain insight into the world of “what’s going on behind the scenes.” Also, easy and inexpensive ways to manage staff and volunteers, box office and publicity.

Set Builders and those who would like to become Set Builders: innovative and practical ways to create theater within a limited budget.

Costumers: How to create a costume plot, measure, local area and internet resources, storing and organizing inventory.

Volunteers of every aspect of theater: those who want to step into this world but lack knowledge and confidence.

Young/old/seasoned veterans/newcomers: there will be time to ask questions, give answers and get to know others in our region.

Presenters for the workshop include Philip Hoks, Jane Anderson and Andrea Thibert.
