Theatre: Making It and Doing It’ is back!

Come join us on 29th of June!

Oh and one more thing: this will be our LAST WORKSHOP before Sam takes off for the Summer to pursue other projects. If you’ve been meaning to get to a session but haven’t managed to yet, now’s the time!

Are you a theatre artist of any discipline who wants to:

  • turn your creative idea into a viable production?
  • obtain funding from Arts Council England?
  • build a sustainable career  in the theatre industry?

Then this is the workshop for you!

This afternoon-long workshop is a crash-course on contemporary theatre-making, what it is and how to do it. Theatre-maker Sam Rees will equip you with the skills and knowledge to get your production on, make a success of it, and, most importantly, pay yourself and others for your work.

Sam will 

  • demystify the process behind getting funding and putting on a show;
  • provide you with a wealth of knowledge and give you the confidence to make the theatre you want to make;
  • inspire you to take the next crucial step in your professional journey;
  • Provide you with a digital info-pack full of resources to support you in the long-term.
