Let’s agree on two things.
1. This year is going to be better than last year.
2. How much better depends on you.
If you agree (especially with that 2nd part), then read on. If you don’t agree, please stop reading. And I’ll see you on Thursday when I review the Ratatouille TikTok musical.
Everyone where they should be?
Ok, look, truth time. We’ve got some work to do. We lost a year of theater-making. And the theaters aren’t even lit . . . yet.
But they will be. And sooner than you think.
As I type, that vaccine is getting put into the arms of people all over the world.
And all over that world, Producers, Theater Owners, Artistic Directors, Casting Directors, etc. are setting specific dates for the return of our art.
Which means it’s time to roll up our sleeves and get to work.
That’s right . . . get to work. Not wait for work. Big difference.
Most people wait for the phone to ring. Most people wait for someone to hire them. Most people wait.
That’s why most people don’t work.
But those TheaterMakers out there who take charge of their own career? Well, for them? Things have a way of always “working” out.
In 2020, the year took charge of us. Me included. It was like a @#$%ing bucking bronco that none of us could tame.
This year, we’ve got a tighter grip on the reins. And it’s time we take charge of it and make it work for us, instead of the other way around.
And I don’t think there has EVER been a more important time to make a commitment like this to yourself and to the theater.
See, if I learned one thing in 2020 it was this . . . LIFE IS SHORT.
You never know when your work will be taken away. You never know when a life will be taken away. (I think about you every dad, Dad – and you continue to inspire me to do challenge myself.)
You never know . . . anything.
And for those of us out there who want to achieve a lot in the theatre (or in life!) . . . whether that is writing shows, producing shows, acting in shows, directing shows, designing shows or whatever . . . we know now, we don’t have any time to waste.
We know that more than ANY OTHER INDUSTRY on the planet.
Which is why the time to act is now.
Which is also why the TheaterMakersStudio is holding a free 5-Day “Take Charge of Your ’21” TheaterMakers Challenge. You can sign up here.
It’s simple. But it works.
Every day for five days, we’ll get on a live session . . . and me, PLUS TWO THEATERMAKER SUPERSTARS, will give you a specific strategy, productivity tip, secret, resource or something we’re doing to make sure we have our best year of theatermaking yet . . . that you can apply to your theatermaking too.
There will be tips on writing, directing, acting, mindset, and more.
Who are the those other TheaterMakers?
You can see them all on this page, but the action-taking, inspirational TheaterMakers you’ll be hearing from include:
I chose each one of them, because, I’m a fan of their talent and a SUPER fan of how they have achieved their success . . . by acknowledging fear, conquering it, and taking charge of their work, their art and their lives.
And boom. Look what happens when they do.
I’ll be honest . . . while I’m super excited about how the tips from these TheaterMakers will help you have your best 2021 yet . . . I’m just as excited about how they will help me! 🙂
In addition to the private livestream strategy sessions for five days straight, you’ll get access to a private facebook group with fellow TheaterMakers who are also taking charge of their year.
You’ll also get some homework, so be ready.
But I also guarantee that if you do that homework, you’ll be on the path to your best year yet.
Oh, and prizes. We’ll be giving away fun theatermaking tools every day.
So . . . if you’re a writer, producer, actor, director, designer, or any kind of TheaterMaker . . . or not yet a TheaterMaker but WANT to be one . . . click here to sign up for the challenge. It’s totally free. And we’re even going to give away some stuff.
In just five days, you’ll be on your way to your best year of theatermaking yet.
And when the year is over, we’ll look back and flip off 2020 and say, “See what I can do when I take charge of my year?”
