In this entry I would like to take you step by step how to make a program. This can be for plays, musical reviews, dance concerts, etc. Below you will find directions on what information to gather, then how to put it together using Photoshop. If you want a tutorial on how to create a program from scratch in Word, I have a video tutorial assignment that I sell on my Teachers Pay Teacher site.
Feel free to check it out! I have also included examples of the nine programs I've made for our own school plays. If you would like to purchase a template for any of these shows, see the links below. You can purchase the template with or without the logo--if you are doing that specific show, then the logo--which is original artwork--is useful.
If you plan on altering it for your own needs, there is no need to purchase the logo. Consider Your Needs First of all, you must decide several things before you begin: Is is 4, 8, or 12? In the beginning I always did 8 page programs two pages front and back but lately, with the reputation of how awesome our programs and our plays are, we have easily been able to raise more than enough to pay for printing with ads, so now we do 12 page programs 3 pages front and back.
Will we be getting advertising?
If you do advertisements, consider going up to another page to accommodate them. Also, give yourself plenty of time to get them! I don't get a single ad myself--the students bring them in! You can see the sponsorship form we use here.
Before you get too far, get some quotes for printing. I've found that its sometimes the same price to get the whole thing done in full color rather than black and white. We get ours printed through FedEx.
It's much cheaper if you do black and white and less pages. Do we have a logo? While you don't need a lot of artwork, its nice if you at least have a logo or a theme.
My good friend Henry Ballesteros did the graphic design for all our logos for years, and they really inspire me as to what direction to take with each program. Now I do the logos myself. You can always find things to add as well--like for the Oklahoma!
If you purchase the logo version of the templates, you will get the logo but also the pieces of the logo so they can be used in different ways.
If you are doing your own logo, then it shouldn't be too difficult!make your own playbill! Playbill VIP allows you to create your very own Playbill Program. We have provided Playbill with all of the credits, song listings, musical numbers and more so that most of the work is already done for you.
TIMELINE. Soon afterwards, an outbreak of the plague forced theatres to close temporarily, and Shakespeare turned for a while to writing poetry. By he was back in the theatre, acting with the Lord Chamberlain's Men.
In the fall of , work began in earnest to launch the Stratford Festival the following summer. The Last Days of Judas Iscariot. 0. Nanas. Posts about The Writing Life written by jamesdorrwriter. It starts with a longish poem from Marge Simon, “Robert Browning and the Spider Poet,” and ends with a flurry of poetry by Christina Sng (a fun one, her second, “Catsitting on Halloween”).
