Stage Management

Open , Component—Fall and Spring

This class meets once a week during the fall semester and is taught by Ms. Minsky. Spring semester is taught by Ms. Vaswani and is devoted to mentored production practicums.

This course is a hands-on laboratory class in the skills, practices, and attitudes that help a stage manager organize an environment in which a theatrical team can work together productively and with minimum stress. Classroom exercises and discussion augment the mentored production work that is assigned to each student. Script analysis, blocking notation, prop management, and cue writing/calling are among the topics covered. Knowledge of—and practice in—stage management are essential tools for directors and useful supplements for actors and designers.
