Stage management is crucial to all of the performing arts: theater, dance, music, opera, and other performance arts. This one-semester course will teach both the methods and principles behind stage management, demonstrating how to support a production while facilitating the work of directors, designers, artists, creators, and performers. In addition to teaching the specific technical skills necessary for each part of the production process, this course will address the intellectual and managerial skills that make stage management an art. A lab is required with this course, in which students work as crew or assistant stage managers on productions.
This course is offered at Boston Conservatory at Berklee under course number T-SK 79914.
