Hail to the Chief!


In Techland there is none greater than that unsung hero of the theatre, The STAGE MANAGER. Part director, part actor, part designer, this hybrid worker bee is the glue that holds many theatre companies together. In searching for the best way to desribe the prime directive of this amazing individual I ran across this little website that depicts it better than I ever could.

Click on the first page and then scroll down as the stagemanager's duties are revealed in a clear and concise format from first rehearsal to run!

I've begun compiling a comprehensive historical reference on stage managers - who they are and where they come from that you might find enjoyable:
