The course at Theatre Producer Academy will teach you what you need to know to find, develop, budget, finance and produce plays and musicals without losing your mind or your life savings.
Producing theatre is one of the most complex activities you can undertake. At work behind every stage production are dozens — sometimes hundreds — of people, deals, labor unions, and other mechanisms that all have to work in unison to get the show built, rehearsed and opened. Then, keeping the show running is a whole other juggling act.
Developed by theatre professionals
We founded Theatre Producer Academy to show you the ropes, to teach you how things work, and give you the knowledge you need to make smart, informed decisions about your productions. The course has been developed by theatre professionals with years of experience producing at all levels, and in consultation with Broadway, Off-Broadway and non-profit theatre producers.
