The Self Producing Handbook



The downloadable handbook will take you through the process of producing your own show, from deciding what kind of project to start with (whether it be a scratch night or longer run), to figuring out budgets and fundraising, to marketing your show and getting people to come and see it.

It’s jam-packed top tips, guidance and room to make your own lists and notes. We’ve designed it to support you from start to finish in your own producing project – and to help make every aspect of it manageable and accessible (we won’t say easy, because we’ll admit that self-producing does take a lot of hard work!)
