Course Details

This is a one-of-a-kind chance to explore the creative contributions a producer makes to a commercial production in the development of the show and the marketing approach to excite an audience. In a three-day, hands-on intensive program, teams of participants will develop plans for a selection of plays and musicals at the O’Neill Summer Conferences. The experience will be a mixture of talks, breakout sessions with working producers and theater professionals, interaction with writers and directors, and group discussion. The curriculum and setting provide a unique opportunity to interact with the O’Neill’s renowned artistic community and understand the process of creative development at the O’Neill’s beautiful campus on the Connecticut shore. The workshop culminates with the teams presenting their strategies to a panel of industry professionals. The program will be led by Tom Viertel – CTI Executive Director, O’Neill Board Chair, and Tony Award-winning Broadway Producer – along with an all-star faculty from the New York theater community.
