Manager on Duty - October 13
A stage manager’s role in the production process with guest instructor Judy Joe, former assistant technical and facilities director – The Fredericton Playhouse.
Stage managers are the unsung heroes of the performing arts. Behind every strong theatre performance is a hardworking stage manager. Even before the first day of rehearsal happens, stage managers have been busy planning, plotting and organizing the entire process so that actors, designers, directors, musicians and everyone else involved are provided a clear path to the end goal – a great show and a great experience! There are so many moving parts involved in a theatre production and it’s the stage manager’s responsibility to keep them all moving in the same direction.
In this workshop, Judy Joe will share her expertise gained through years working with Theatre New Brunswick, Harvest Jazz and Blues Festival, the Fredericton Playhouse and others. Learn how to run an effective rehearsal and deliver a top-notch performance, and see for yourself why stage managers everywhere are the bread and butter of the biz!
This workshop is presented in partnership with Theatre St. Thomas.
Registration closes October 4.
Workshop fee: $30+HST
Max. class size: 15
