THTR 1049 Advanced Production Lab: Stage Manager (Fall/Spring: 2 )

Course Description

Once students gain experience as an assistant stage manager, they may advance to the two credit Stage Management lab. The stage manger works alongside the director on a production and is in charge of organizing rehearsals, communicating with the production team, and running performances. Stage managers plan each rehearsal with the director, create rehearsal schedules, keep track of blocking, costume and prop needs, and distribute rehearsal reports to theatre staff and designers. Stage managers are assigned at the end of the previous academic school year to stage manage one of the six Theatre Department productions. This lab requires department permission and significant production experience. Stage managers at BC work alongside students and professionals alike and are considered leaders within the department.
