Theatre Leadership Project FAQs: Your Queries Answered

Applications for our Creative Producing program are currently closed for the 2022/2023 year. Please check back in the spring for updates on next year’s application process with our partners at Columbia.

No prior experience in commercial theater is required for this fellowship. Diversity of experience from comparable fields is welcomed and encouraged for this fellowship.

Year 1 – Prince Fellowship

  • With mentorship provided by some of Broadway’s most prolific producers, the Creative Producer fellow will capitalize on all aspects of the Prince Fellowship including mentorship, access to Columbia University classes, and workshop funds. The highlight of the first year, will be the workshop of the producer’s project.


Year 2 – Work Placement

  • TTLP will place the Creative Producing Fellow into a producer’s office as an associate producer or in whatever capacity the producer deems fit. The placement shall last for one year. It is TTLP’s goal that the fellow gains experience in all aspects of running a producing office: budgeting, marketing and pr, contracts, and production.


Year 3 – Project Development

  • Year three of the Creative Producer Fellowship will allow the fellow to lead their own learning and dictate the path in which they are most interested. TTLP will follow their lead. For example, the fellow may choose to stay in their year two placement or want a separate placement opportunity (i.e. a general management office for further learning or with another producer). TTLP will assist in that process by arranging the placements. Likewise, the fellow may want to start their own company and TTLP will provide assistance and access in that direction. The goal for this year is to provide a bespoke program that allows the fellow to chart out their journey while giving them the tools, access, and financial assistance needed to build a sustainable life in the commercial theater industry.

Each fellow will be placed in a General Management office throughout the program.

Year 1- Main Focus: Contracts and Financial Planning.  Through the GM offices, fellows will also gain practical applications in  creating developmental budgets, union reports, prepping payroll, paying bills, reviewing P & Ls, checking settlements, updating budgets/budget tracking.

Year 2- Main Focus: Developmental process, Transfers, Post Broadway Life (including Touring, Licensing and Subsidiaries). Through the GM offices, fellows will also gain practical applications in touring budgets, Touring proformas, Commercial OOT budgets, Full Broadway budgets, Negotiating deals & contracts.

Year 3- Main Focus: Job placement. TTLP will work with candidates to find job placements during Year 3.
