A chance to learn from a professional stage manager
Is Stage Management Right for You?
You know you are a stage manger if:
- You live for organization
- You are the one who ends up fixing things- even when you don't want too
- You are the person people go to for help
- You enjoy creating structure out of chaos
- You are good in a crisis and can think on your feet
- You can keep a confidence…or many
- You are not afraid to be both a team player and a leader
- You are a good mediator
- You know how to juggle
- You love theatre
- Did I say? You live for organization?
Want the real inside scoop into the theatrical process? Does the above sound like you? Are you curious? Then let us talk about what it means to be a stage manager with the challenges, applications, responsibilities, and ultimately, the satisfaction of being an integral part of the theatre-making experience.
Learn what a stage manager does from the very beginning to the lustrous end and all the stages in between. CAST could use you, actors will praise you, technical staff will thank you and directors will bless you!
What You Will Learn
You will learn in this workshop:
- Beginning procedures before the play is cast, including what your tool box needs to have (I mean literal tool box)
- Tricks to organizing cast & crew
- What to include in your master script
- How to ‘call a show’ and maintain the integrity of the director’s intent throughout the production
- Tips to facilitate greater discipline in rehearsal and back stage.
Written material will be given to you at the class.
