The 2006 session runs April 28-30. "The program is open to anyone interested in producing or co-producing on or Off-Broadway, on the road or investing in commercial productions."
Frederic B. Vogel, who died Nov. 29, 2005, created the Commercial Theater Institute in conjunction with The League of American Theatres and Producers, Inc. and Theatre Development Fund in 1982. Throughout his career, Vogel trained two generations of American theatre producers and scores of regional theatre managers. He was considered one of the theatre community's most respected and knowledgeable management advisors.
"CTI was the first workshop ever conducted to train producers for commercial Broadway, Off-Broadway and touring productions," according to a statement. "Workshop leaders have included the commercial theatre's major Producers, General Managers, Theater Owners, Press Agents, Literary Agents, Theatrical Attorneys, and others. Over 50 participants in these programs have gone on to produce successfully on and off Broadway. More than 400 registrants from five different countries participated in last year's workshop."
The three-day program, held April 28-30, will feature top members of the theatrical industry, including producers, general managers, and legal experts as well as theatre marketers.
