All For One Announces New Classes To Prepare Performers For Festival Season
Many writers, directors, theatre artists, and solo performers leap head first into Fringe and other festivals for the chance to get their work seen. But how do you ensure that your festival run gets the attention it deserves, and that the costs of self-producing don't put you underwater? All For One, the NYC based theater company dedicated to solo performance, is proud to announce two new classes in July, designed to help theater artists get ready for their festival runs.
Produce To Win is a one-day workshop that focuses on Key Practices for Producing, Budgeting, and Contracting to achieve your goals. This concise introduction to producing is presented in three parts. First, Tony-Award winning producer Jane Dubin introduces key practices for producing - both in the festival circuit and a traditional run. Then, All For One's associate producer Corinne Woods will provide a detailed introduction to budgets and contracts. The workshop will conclude with a Q&A moderated by All For One Board Member and Chairman of the Off-Broadway Alliance Peter Breger.
Think Bigger Than Press is a one-day intensive taught by Valerie Hager (Naked In Alaska) and Aizzah Fatima (Dirty Paki Lingerie). This class teaches unconventional marketing tools and strategies to help artists take their festival production to another level-without spending a fortune. >From elevator pitches to cross-promotion, students will leave this class with the tools they need to get their festival show the attention it deserves.
All For One is proud to bring these acclaimed theatre artists into the classroom to share their wealth of expertise. Producing your show in a festival doesn't have to mean financial loss and disorganization. With the tools and knowledge offered in these classes theater artists will be set up for success.
Produce To Win is on July 14th and Think Bigger Than Press is on July 19th. Both classes are held at TheaterLab (357 W 36th St. 3rd floor). For a limited time use the code BIRDIE when registering to receive an early bird discount of 15% off. www.allforonetheater.org/classes
