ABOUT THE PRODUCTION

This is where the main production blurb lives! (You’ll edit this section on the front-end of the DIVI Visual Builder.) About blurbs: originally drafted for the season announcement press release, we refine each show’s blurb as a team before that individual production’s press release goes out, to make sure it’s still in line with how the project has evolved since it was announced. Once that revision has happened, we keep the blurb consistent across the website, eblasts, postcard, and any other promotional materials. 

The second paragraph of the blurb serves as a short, punchy sentence that can stand on its own for spaces where the full blurb is too long to include. See can i touch it? for a great example.

Masking and Vaccination Protocols

This box is edited on the front-end of the DIVI Visual Builder. Be sure to confirm the specifics of any Covid protocols with the full team (and any producing partners) before they are included publicly. If we don’t need this box in the future, you can delete it from the front end.

Producing Partners

AMPLIFYING ACTION

Company One Theatre is producing
[name of production] to AMPLIFY:

  • Each production has a series of bullet points we call Amplify Language.

  • They serve as both internal and external guideposts speaking to WHY we are producing a play, and for whom.

  • These are refined with the full team, often with leadership from New Work and Connectivity. 

  • You can edit these bullet points from the front-end of the DIVI Visual Builder.

Connectivity Partners

  • Be sure to check in with Connectivity before the production page goes live to ask whether we have any confirmed connectivity partners.

  • Often, partnerships continue to develop and be added throughout the rehearsal process. Make sure to check back in often, and add any partners who we’re working with on post-show conversations or other connected events.

  • Each partner listed in this section should link to their website, if they have one.  

RESOURCES & ACTION STEPS

  • Connectivity should prepare the list of resources and action steps as we approach opening night. Be sure to check in with them to see if they need support!
  • Since that list will likely come after the production page launches, we usually include this placeholder text:
    • Check back closer to the production for a list of resources and action steps!

PRESS & BUZZ

This section should include links to all press that mentions us, even articles we’re not including on the press slider above. Below are examples of how to format the links and quotes:

July 7, 2022: Dorchester Reporter, “At Strand This Month: the politics of Black hair, community activism”

“Playwright Francisca Da Silveira, a Cape Verdean American, is based in Boston and calls both Dorchester and Roxbury home. ‘I grew up walking by the Strand every single day, most likely either running after the No. 17 or the No. 15 bus,’ she said. Now, she is seeing her dream of having a play at the Strand come true.”

 June 17, 2022: WBUR, “16 theater productions to see in Boston and beyond this summer”

“What’s most noticeable, though, is that many stories coming to the stage this summer are about significant change, from life-altering diagnoses to secrets, gentrification and displacement.”
