Hello!

Welcome to the online version of the SECRETS TO MARKETING YOUR SHOW AT ANY FESTIVAL workshop, co-taught by Robin Gelfenbien and Matt Hoverman! 

Previous attendees of our live workshops have used the tools we share to generate terrific press coverage in major media outlets like the Wall Street Journal, NPR, Backstage, New York Daily News and more – and to attract the attention of industry and audience alike. By popular demand, we’re now offering this career-changing workshop online, so solo show artists, playwrights, actors, and theatre artists of any discipline (like YOU!) can increase your visibility, jump-start your careers, and become the world-wide sensations you’re meant to be.

This online workshop consists of:

  • A video opening message
  • A PDF jam-packed with info
  • A 9-part audio recording of a recent SECRETS TO MARKETING YOUR SHOW AT ANY FESTIVAL workshop (3 hours total)
  • A video of an Alumni Panel (1 hour)

Note: In this brief video, we encourage you to do this workshop with a partner. If you can’t find someone, join the Facebook page Solo Show Artists Unite and post that you’re looking for a buddy!
