Open Book Theatre requires us to show our budget sheets to all members of a production, together with the investors in that production.
At our recent presentation for the Directors Guild of Great Britain, we showed a cut-down version of the spreadsheets we use to demonstrate how our budgeting process works.
The sample spreadsheet can be used as an example of how to lay out a budget for your production. Each cost is held on a separate tab, and brought through to the Top Sheet – which will show whether the show is projected to make a profit or loss.
Please feel free to use the sheet as a basis for your own productions – and do let us know how you get on with it.
