This book is an excellent reference, very nuts and bolts with almost everything in it regarding theatre. It mainly concentrates on production as opposed to presenting and renting, and from the point of view of a production company who might rent a theater as opposed to a theater operator who may rent to production companies, but it handles it from other points of view too.
Regarding the Save ECPAC
project, and the ECPAC Foundation, we can consider three levels of theatre management:
- renting - providing the space to production companies for one or more days of use. Normally, all promotion and marketing is the responsibility of the renter. This is the least risky for theater management and also the least rewarding. Renters vary in their need for support from 4-walls (no support) to full support of sound, lights, and other crew members.
- presenting - arranging for production companies to come to the theater. The presenting organization is responsible for marketing and promotion of the event. Arrangements vary from fixed-price to back-end splits.
- production - putting together all elements of an event including artists, performers, costumes, etc. etc. Although CCT in the past did do production of their own performances, the ECPAC Foundation does not intend to do any production, esp. not of any theatrical engagements.
The following chapters are particularly relevant to our needs and so they are reproduced here so everyone on our management team can read these over and become cognizant of the issues.
There are a number of appendices that are relevant to our needs as well. Some of these will be converted to editable form so as to provide a basis for our own documents.
