Stage Management & Technical Production
with Kat Chin
This workshop explores several skills that stage managers cultivate and use everyday including: problem solving, scheduling, working with professional theatre agreements, leadership, collaboration, and communication.
Presentation of each skill set will be followed by discussion, talking through real-life situations, and students will be asked to draft a few simple documents to show their understanding of the material.
