All the world's a stage - connect with the audience

At Downstage Media we give theater professionals who are intimidated by social media a customized plan of what to post so they can connect with their audiences online and onstage.

At Downstage Media we want you to get more gigs, sell more stuff, and build a brand. The most comprehensive option makes it easier for you to maintain a career in the arts, while we maintain your online presence with a blog, newsletter, and social media content among other options. There are also consulting options, and a simple kick start just to get you out of the wings.

You can get lots of worthwhile information for free with our newsletter, check out the blog, and keep up with Downstage on social media to stay in the loop.

Also, Annie Schiffmann is available to speak at your event.
