Theatre Producer

Theatre producers manage the production of theatre performances and the running of theatres. Producers are not artists – they are not involved in he creative process – their job is dealing with the business side of theatre. Thus their responsibilities involve raising or providing financial backing, hiring the creative personnel (writer, director, designers, choreographer, etc.). They may even be involved in casting performer for the production. Aside from these managerial functions, the producer also deals with the finance and gives the director a budget to work around.
