WORKING WITH A DRAMATURG
We've heard from a lot of artists who haven't previously worked with a dramaturg that they are concerned about not being able to afford one. We don't feel a dramaturg should be any more of a luxury than an actor or a director.
We base our fees on the size of the project and the scope of your needs. For a production, our pay is generally comparable to that of the designers. For pre-production work, we will figure out an agreement that makes sense for everyone involved.
We also offer script consultation packages that have standard, flat fees. Details are below.
Get helpful feedback on your draft with our one-on-one consultation packages. Select a Beehive dramaturg (pending availability) who will have an in-depth conversation with you about where you are in your process and what sort of feedback is helpful to you. The dramaturg will then read your draft thoroughly and prepare feedback based on the guidelines you have provided. A detailed conversation will follow, delving deep into whatever aspects you like: plotting, character arcs, timelines, submission assistance, next step suggestions, etc.
We have found this especially useful for playwrights who are newer to the field, but it can be beneficial for anyone at a point in the process when you need an outside perspective from someone experienced and supportive. We offer two packages:
Package 1 – $195 – up to 5 hours
This package includes a preliminary conversation, a thorough read-through with notes, and a follow-up conversation.
Package 2 – $275 – up to 10 hours
This package includes a preliminary conversation, a thorough read-through with notes, a follow-up conversation, and additional conversations/reading based on new edits.
Can't afford these rates but still interested in getting script feedback? Please don't hesitate to reach out.
