The Indie
Producer’s Co-op

April - June 2019

The Indie Producer’s Co-op provides two students from George Brown Theatre School with a ground-level education in producing theatre.

Participants receive a two-week intensive that investigates the vital role of the producer. They will learn what it takes to run a professional theatre company, when to say yes or no to projects, how to develop a realistic budget, how to make sure your project stands out, what factors lead to a successful production, and much more.

This intensive is followed by four weeks of unparalleled job training. Participants will work on Theatre by the Bay’s 2019 season in a variety of capacities. In the past, these have included marketing, audience development, fundraiser development, sponsorship accrual, and production management.

The Indie Producer’s Co-op will be overseen by Artistic Director (and inaugural Indie Producer) Iain Moggach, with assistance from Alex Dault, the former artistic director and founder of the Co-op.

The Indie Producer’s Co-op is generously supported by Angela Baldwin.
