The Producer is responsible for ensuring that the non-artistic side of the production runs smoothly. This job requires organisational skills. It is often undertaken by the committee, sometimes by the director and sometimes by an individual. It involves liasing with the Director about his or her requirements and sometimes involves talking a Director out of the impractical. It involves finding willing bodies to perform the jobs listed elsewhere in these pages. It also involves coordinating the people performing these activities and ensuring that things happen in a timely manner.
There is a separate production to do list in the members pages which details what needs to be done and when. This does not mean that the Producer is responsible for doing all of these activities the role is about making sure they get done by someone in a timely manner. Be prepared for people to come to you with problems.
