Many Broadway producers start their careers by producing much smaller-scale shows, often in tiny spaces and for short runs off-off-Broadway. The experience is invaluable, but the rules are very different from Broadway. CTI has teamed up with Shay Gines of New York Innovative Theatre Foundation to create a full-day course that will explore this theatrical world. The New York Innovative Theatre Foundation’s purpose is to celebrate the great work being done off-off-Broadway and help bolster the community surrounding those shows.

Inspired by feedback received from CTI participants, this course will explore how and where to mount a small production, how to find the resources to make tiny budgets go far, and how to find an audience – perfect for producers, writers, and actors looking to kick-start their careers.

If you intend to enroll at the student ($55) or educator ($85) rates, please email Commercial.Theater.Institute.Info@gmail.com from a school (.edu) account.
