Stage Manager

One of my goals as a stage manager is to try and make the entire process digital. This is not only a time-saver, but it also makes the information such as blocking and ques widely available to the cast and crew. I discovered the online program called stage write early into my stage management for the production of Bright Star.  I pitched the idea to my teacher Andy Hunsaker and after showing him some of my progress he approved the purchase of the application and since then we have been able to use it for every production going forward. Other items for stage management include things such as daily calls posted on the call board, updating of a digital calendar, and sending daily texts through reminders to each cast, crew, and parents. 

 

I take daily rehearsal reports detailed with information that a tech designer might need in any upcoming coming meetings.  I help finalize ques for the show and make the calls for ques during the show.  At the beginning of each show, we do what we call a contract.  It outlines your specific job and gives a description of what is required for the grade you are wanting to receive for that class. I then use the contract to keep the crew on track and help them meet their deadlines. 

For Sound Of Music, I was able to broadcast my digital god book to both spot ops, the light op, both sound ops, and both ASM's. A total of seven people. We were able to use a app to send a live feed of my god book, to be used to help keep on top of cues, and keep everyone on the same page. When I flipped a page, so did everyone else.
