UpintheAir Theatre’s Daniel Martin and Dave Mott offer a crash course in producing. Indie production is how many theatre makers get started – in the Fringe, in another festival, maybe just striking out on their own. The six-session Block P offers practical skills, meant to apply to a project you have in the works. It starts with “What is a producer?” and ends with a site survey of a theatre, including what questions to ask, and how to manage the tech. Dan and Dave have expanded their Festival primer to make it relevant for indie producers.
“PTC and UpInTheAir Theatre’s Block P is a spectacular series of sessions on the nuts, bolts, and glory of producing plays. Dan and Dave are savvy, classy, and generous in clarifying the mysteries of their work.” – from participant feedback form
