Behind the Scenes: Stage Management
The stage manager is the ultimate communicator, diplomat, and problem solver in the theatre. They must ensure that everything runs as smoothly as possible throughout the entire production process, and once a show opens, they are charged with “maintaining its artistic integrity.” Yet the audience never sees these very important individuals. Discover what stage management is about, find out about the numerous tasks they are charged with before and during a show, and understand why a play or musical cannot go on without them.
Experience will include:
- An inside look at the role that stage managers play in the creation of a Broadway show.
- A consideration of a stage manager’s duties throughout the run of a show.
- Tips on how to pursue a career in Stage Management
- Q&A with a Stage Manager
