Theater marketing and fundraising
November 17, 2008 8:09 AM   Subscribe

Where can a Russian theater go in the US to learn about fundraising and marketing?

The theater in Yekaterinberg where my boss was a competition judge earlier this year would like to come to the US next spring to study ways to bring more income to their theater and meet other musical theater professionals. We suggested that they attend the National Alliance of Musical Theaters meeting in Atlanta, and that they contact the International Sister Cities program.

Are there other resources they can look into? I'm in Chicago, but we don't need to limit it to here.
