Developing your script is a critical part of the path to commercial production. Producers and their creative partners have a variety of tools at their disposal to accomplish this task including readings, workshops and labs, showcases and festivals, college development programs, small and large not-for-profit theater productions. This one-day seminar gives you a step-by-step guide to union rules, what to expect to accomplish artistically for each of these options and how to budget their costs. We also explore the pros and cons of each kind of developmental step.
