Theatre Publicity & Marketing

Putting on a show requires time, dedication, and hard work. Building a set, rigging up lights, sewing costumes, learning lines... these are all key steps to creating amazing theatre. All your incredible work deserves to be seen by a sold-out audience, doesn't it? Without publicity, that might not happen.

Even so, show publicity is often overlooked, misunderstood, or undervalued. In this Skill Sharpening Workshop, T@F's Production Coordinator Stephanie Haddad will discuss publicity basics, share her personal experiences, and outline successful strategies to fill seats at every show.
