Have you ever wanted to know what it takes to produce a play in Boston today? Here is your chance. In this course, Lyric Stage Company of Boston Executive Director, Matt Chapuran, will guide you through the process and steps of creating live theatre. Participants will be encouraged to pitch a title of the play they would like to see produced and the class will explore the narrative, why it’s relevant at this moment in time, and the challenges that a producer would face with a particular production. We will then explore the essential elements of the theatre production process including:
• building a design team
Participants will have the opportunity to think through the design of their own productions while learning about the actual process of bringing a Lyric Stage production to life. All class sessions will be held virtually at the Lyric Stage Company of Boston and members will receive a series of questions weekly to think about before each class.
