5 Takeaways from the latest Get Your Show Off The Ground Seminar.

Two weeks ago, on one of the last beautiful days of the summer, eight passionate peeps sacrificed the sun to get together with me and work on something that would keep them smiling through the dark days of winter:  their project!

That’s right, it was my Get Your Show Off The Ground Seminar!

And it was a great one.  We had discussions about networking, about how to fill the seats of your showcase with Producers, and we even had a comic book superhero make an appearance.

As usual, my trusty associate, Kayla, jotted down some of my Kenisms throughout the seminar so I could post them here.

Here are five takeaways from the seminar, that hopefully can help you as you endeavor to get your show up on its feet:

  • Using a video of your show to try and sell it to investors and producers is like using a screwdriver to hammer in a nail.  It can work, but it’s not the best tool for the job.
  • When trying to get an investor to invest in your show, think like a drug dealer.  Give them just a little taste, so they come back to you wanting more.
  • Investors look for a reason to say no – so don’t give it to them!
  • The best thing about theater is that you can constantly make it better.  The worst thing about theater is that you can constantly make it better.
  • Think you need a new writer for your show but afraid to give up that much control?  Sometimes, you don’t need to give up your baby for adoption if it’s a little sickly.  Just bring in a doctor.
