It's also packed full of insights and tricks of the trade, giving you the inspiration and confidence you need to succeed

So whether you're taking your first steps in producing, or simply want to know what it takes to get a show on the stage, this is for you

Drawing on his own experience as a producer of theatre productions at every level University-Fringe-West End James Seabright takes you through each stage of the process, particularly ...
