Theatre Stage Management Workshop - Class Re-offered

A skilled Stage Manager is the one person in the production team who “keeps it all together.”  As a conduit for information, the stage manager is responsible for ensuring that all members of the theatre company are provided with the information that they need to get the show ready for the stage.  As an administrator, the stage manager assists the director, organizes rehearsals, sets schedules and takes notes.  As an artist, the stage manager calls the cues that keep the show running smoothly and as intended by the director.  Overall, the Stage Manager is a communicator, decision maker and key member of any stage production.


Topics will include: the duties of a stage manager; working with directors, designers, actors, assistant stage managers and crew; scheduling; safety; managing rehearsals and performances; keeping track of all of the theatrical elements: props, costumes, lighting, audio, set and fly; blocking notation; and building a prompt book.

TheatrePEI’s Stage Management Workshop is suitable for new stage managers, those with a little experience and those wishing to update their skills.  Directors and Producers will also benefit from this workshop and are welcome to attend.  The format of each session encourages questions and discussion.  Practical hands-on work will be assigned.
