Producing Your Own Work

Who could benefit from this course?

Have an idea for a show but not sure what comes next? This course is for aspiring theatre makers wanting to get their work on stage.

How does it work?

Theatre Maker & Creative Producer Amy Clare Tasker will guide you through how to produce your own work and the basics of starting a theatre company. Learn how to get a team together, how to find a platform for your show to be performed, and ways to extend the life of a new piece of work. Using past Pinecone Performance Lab productions as examples, Amy will take you through a timeline of a production from initial idea to first performance. There will be plenty of opportunity for questions and open discussion.

This course takes place online via Zoom; please double check your time zone when booking.

What do you gain?

You will be provided with a guide to which tasks need to be tackled and what order they need to be addressed. You will get inside knowledge of how festivals and fringe venues in the UK support and programme new work. You will take the next steps on your path to becoming a confident self-producing artist.
