National Theater Institute Alums Reunite

Alumni of the National Theater Institute at the O'Neill Theater Center in Waterford, CT are reuniting to share resources and support each other in a New York City based endeavor.

The group plans productions, a theater festival and more including the following goals:
- A complete database of members, accessible to all who want it, and organize using the forum of Facebook and a Google Group.
- A monthly get together for socializing and networking.
- A website where everyone can have a profile, write blogs, post castings, advertise, etc.
- A production in Fall 2010.
- Become a non-profit umbrella organization for the theater companies made up of alums that already exist, (Odyssey Productions, Fine Feathered Friends, Free Agi Productions, Fullstop Collective, Superhero Clubhouse…to name a few), working to promote and support them all.
- Produce an annual theater festival where these companies and/or pairings of NTI playwrights and directors are guaranteed a slot for a production.
- Invite NTI teachers back as both advisors in this endeavor and as colleagues. (Imagine acting, directing, and holding workshops together again!)
- Garner a space in the city that is home for anything and everything people want to do…shows, classes (taking them or teaching them), workshops, lectures, exhibits, rehearsals, parties/fundraisers…etc. We want a place to call our own.

Help is needed on various committees that are forming including:

-Web Design
-Legal
-Alum relations
-Marketing
-Development /Fundraising / Grant Writing
-Real Estate
-Loan / Purchasing research
-Public Relations
-Artistic Committee / Season Deciders
