Stage Management

The goal of the Stage Management department is to assist the student in recognizing and fulfilling their role as a passionate artistic collaborator and as an effective organizational manager throughout the entire production process. The role of the production stage manager requires a deep commitment to the artistic process and a fundamental desire to support the work through the creation of an environment in which artistic risks can be taken in creative collaboration. The program is structured to prepare the student for work in the commercial and regional theater, as well as opportunities in touring, dance, opera, and event management.
