Hi I'm Richard Rifkin and I'm here at the famous Merlin Theater in Budapest, Hungary. And we are talking about how to run a production. Ok, we are speaking about you being a producer. How are you going to put together a show. As the producer you are responsible for everything. You have to put the pieces together. So first of all, you have to figure out what kind of show you are doing. You are going to need a script Ok, there's lots, hundreds, thousands of scripts out there available to do. You may have to pay some royalties but you'll have a show ready, packaged and ready to do. All on paper for you. Or if you are inclined to do so you can write your own script, do your own show or get somebody you know, a friend that's also a writer and maybe produce your own original show. What else do you need? You need a theater. You need a place to do it, so either a little theater or some other place that has a little bit of a presidium and a stage where you can put on your show. You are going to need actors. So you are going to have to have a casting session and find actors for the parts in the show you want to do. Also you have to of course have a director. Someone has to be in charge of the production. The actual show. Then you need lights, sounds, things of that nature. But all this can be found in books, you can find it on the internet. You can even go to classes, there's classes I'm sure. Maybe at your local university or your local city college, so it's not so difficult to find out how to put on a production. It's just a matter of do you have the guts to do it, can you do it, of course you can. And we know you can, good luck with your show. See Ya.
