Three Day Intensive
An Introduction to Commercial Producing

Saturday, April 18th 9:00 AM - 5:30 PM
Sunday, April 19th 9:00 AM - 1:30 PM

at The Snapple Theater
210 W 50th St

 Networking receptions will follow the courses both Friday and Saturday

I attended the CTI 3 Day Intensive some years ago. It is the gold standard for understanding the commercial theater, Broadway in particular. The line-up is a fantastic collection of the most savvy producers and theater professionals.

 The networking alone is worth the price of admission.

In the course, you learn the basic economic and creative facts about commercial theater. It prepares you, as well, for the advanced and more specific and detailed additional courses the CTI provides during the year in the basic facets of producing commercial theater.

 If you are interested in producing, or just understanding Broadway and the commercial theater, the CTI 3-Day Intensive is the prerequisite.

 "Here's the door that opens the world of producing to you. This program gives you a comprehensive overview of producing for the commercial theater, with sessions including specific case histories, budgets, sample agreements, and is renowned for its networking opportunities. Come together with Broadway's hit makers and the producers of the future as well as the service professionals that you'll need to make you a success."
