Class Description


Important Note for ACT Teens Who Want to Stage Manage:

In order to be considered for a stage management position at The ACT, you must be fully trained in all aspects of the position. This 5-session class provides that required and essential training, which must be completed before your application to stage manage can be considered.

Stage management is the art and practice of organizing and coordinating a theatrical production. Stage managers are the critical, but invisible glue that brings every well-produced show together! Come to this hands-on class, designed exclusively for teens, to learn about the core responsibilities of stage managers and how their position fits into the overall plan for a production. Learn terminology and how to break down a script, arrange and efficiently manage a backstage area, spike a stage, direct curtain opening/closings, run a show on a headset, communicate with different departments, and direct actors and other backstage helpers. Examine the art of working with actors, directors, technical directors, set designers, and costume designers to bring a theatrical vision to life on stage.

If you are interested in stage managing a camp or a mainstage production for the 2018-2019 season, this class is for you!
