BMP: PRODUCER ACADEMY
At a time when live theatre is on pause, BMP: Producer Academy offers an opportunity to build a skill set that will allow artists and producers to move forward quickly with their projects once the COVID-19 restrictions are lifted.
BMP’s Producer Academy aims to help aspiring producers bring their works to the stage. An extension of BMP’s Next Gen program, which identifies and shapes the next generation of composers for vocal theater works, the Producer Academy provides keen insights and skill development for the creation, development, and production of new performance works. The initial free series of workshops covers a variety of topics including budgeting, the different phases of the production process, different types of producers, and insights into the producing and presenting industry.
