All For One's 'Successfully Package and Tour Your Solo Show' Workshop to Kick Off 5/28

After honing your show through performances in New York City and on the festival circuit, how do you take your work to the next level and tour your show in theaters and performance spaces nationwide? While local performances and festivals can be essential for refining your show and gathering awards and reviews, touring is often the best way to extend the life of your show and actually earn a profit for your work. In this four-week program, students will learn the key, road-tested approaches for creating a compelling marketing package and booking paid opportunities for performing their show

Since winning the Overall Excellence Award for Best Solo Show at FringeNYC 2009, Truth Values has received nearly 100 performances and reached over 17,000 audience members nationally.
