Stage Management

Industry employers will tell you that the best (and most employable) Stage Managers are those who combine strong leadership and organization skills with a thorough foundation in the theatre as a whole. Our Stage Management emphasis is designed to help students develop their skills and knowledge to meet these demands. We accomplish this through a combination of curriculum and hands-on experience, permitting students to learn several approaches to the art of Stage Management, develop a firm understanding of design and rehearsal processes, turn their confidence into proven leadership qualities, and learn both cloud-based and traditional means of communicating with a team.

We utilize state-of-the-industry tools, such as Virtual Callboard, cloud-based and app-based communication tools, and others, so that when our Stage Management students hit the job market, they are ready to work.
