Putting together a new tour is very exciting… dreaming up all the places you’d like to take your show, the rapturous applause, the standing ovations, the 5 star reviews... there is however a practical side to consider before you get too carried away.

This checklist outlines in detail many of the steps involved in developing a tour including; planning the itinerary, applying for funding, organising logistics, production and crew, marketing and community engagement.  Use this checklist when working with your tour stakeholders to make sure everyone is clear on work load and their individual responsibilities. Perhaps not every step in this list will apply to every tour and there may be some more tasks to add… either way it’s a good place to start.
