Producing your Successful Solo / One Person Show

4 session workshop in San Francisco
Nov 16, Nov 23, Dec 7, Dec 14
StageWerx Theater. 446 Valencia St.

Registration: $150.00 (Split payment plans considered - ask!!)

Are you writing a solo show? Are you considering self-production, co production or full production with a theater and don't know where to start? How do solo performers create buzz around a show? How do you get reviews in the press? What kind of work does it take to sell out shows? How do you find a director? Where are the places in the Bay Area to perform? What would emerging and professional solo performers tell you about 'what they wish they knew' when they began this solo theater journey?

This 4 session workshop will arm you with the concrete tools and critical knowledge to successfully imagine, write, finish, perform, produce, market and publicize your one person show.

Topics included are: writing and finishing, fringe festivals, solo showcases, audience development, theater rental, collaboration, constructing your budget, looking for development funding, publicity, marketing and resource information on local theaters, rehearsal spaces, and much, much more.
