Feasibility Studies


Starting a new theatre is a complex series of tasks involving critical legal, logistical, artistic and managerial decisions. Likewise, building a new physical theatre requires expert advice on architecture, acoustics, customer services and backstage design. Over the past fifty years, the Institute of Outdoor Theatre has worked with scores of communities to prepare detailed and comprehensive feasibility studies prepared by teams of professional consultants in each of these areas:

  • Strategic Planning
  • Identifying and Developing Appropriate Storylines
  • Building Community Support
  • Fundraising and Marketing Plans
  • Attendance Projections
  • Preparation of Capital and Operating Budgets
  • Personnel Searches for Playwrights, Composers, Managers and Directors
  • Theatre Site Selection and Design
