LET’S PUT ON A SHOW! OMG! NOW WHAT DO I DO??

The knowledge to produce a show with confidence. 

From the archives: Julie McLeod, dancing backstage with a Moseyev Dancer from Russia, after the original Broadway production of “West Side Story.”

Are you ready to put on a show? Have production jitters taken a hold of you? This workshop, led by Julie McLeod, will quell those jitters! Initial concept, budgets, location, contracts, funding and promotion, designing the program, rehearsals, ticketing details, casting, rehearsals,  and the performance itself will be discussed. The idea of putting on a production can be overwhelming and intimidating. Julie’s wealth of experience and knowledge, and her dedication to share with other artists, will give us guidelines and confidence.

Founder and Director of Art Without Limits, Julie McLeod served as Executive Director of SB Dance Alliance for 10 years, producing over 100 concerts. In 1979, she opened Dance Warehouse, which became the hub of dance in Santa Barbara for 20 years. It boasted 4 studios, guest classes and studio performances. Julie studied at Juilliard School of Dance on a scholarship with professors like Martha Graham, Jose Limon, and Anthony Tudor! She graduated to perform off Broadway, USO in Europe, toured with Yul Brynner in “King and I,” and landed the biggie, the original company of “West Side Story.”

The workshop is free but a donation to Arts without Limits is recommended for their work in organizing this workshop.  Suggested donation is $20, but any amount is appreciated.
