Call It! Stage Management for Teens
Behind The Scenes Series
Resident Stage Manager & General Production Manager – The ACT
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!
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 can be considered.
If you are interested in stage managing a camp or a mainstage production for the 2018-2019 season, this class is for you!
