Event Details

Join us on November 11 at 5:00pm for a Stage Management Tech Talk!

At the helm of every smooth running show is a well equipped stage manager. You’ve heard them calling cues or reminding you to sign in at the callboard, but what else do stage managers do and why is it so important? Join us on Zoom as we clear up some of the mystery behind the stage management profession. During this talk, we will discuss the roles of a stage manager in a variety of settings, why stage management is vital to a production, what to look for when hiring a stage manager, and how to best communicate and interact with your stage manager. We will also provide samples of stage management paperwork and then open up the floor to a Q&A session.
