While the minute details are still being worked out, here is what I have so far.<P>The show is will amount to a showcase of local talent in San Diego. There will be singers, dancers (Tap, Hip Hop, Ballet, Jazz, Salsa, Swing, Modern, etc.), a choir, and a band. Since I am using only local talent, I want to make sure the production values (sound, lighting, etc.) are of the highest quality possible. <P>The tempo of the show will be similar to that of STOMP in that I want each piece to segue into the next with no breaks between. The length of the show is 90 minutes and consists of a 45 minute first act, 15 minute intermission, and 30 minute second act. I am shooting for October 2002. Any advice anyone has would be greatly appreciated!<p>[This message has been edited by Bahear (edited January 17, 2002).]

I'm not sure where to start to advise you. You say this is your first time producing; what other theatre experience have you had? What kind of stage show are you doing? There are a number of basic books out there that could help you.<P>If you have any specific questions, ask away.

The first advice I have is something they say in film: A performance can be made or destroyed in pre-production. The more planning you do before the less surprises (and surprise expenses) you will have.<P>So the new mantra is....pre-production, pre-production, pre-production.
