NEW CLASS! Stage managers are often the unsung hero of a play, acting like the rudder of a ship and helping a director steer the production towards opening night. In this workshop, you will gain practical experience from pre-production through performances and strike of a show. Learn how to support a productive rehearsal room and walk away with templates, tips, and tricks ready for you to use. Even if you are not a stage manager (yet!), this workshop will provide a well-rounded look at what it takes to make a play happen. Prior experience in theater is helpful but not required.
