How to Become a Good Stage Manager

By an eHow Contributor

Stage managers create the atmosphere that the director is trying to achieve through direction of the various technicians. A good one can create a wonderful experience out of mediocre material, which is part of what theater's about. You want to be at the top for the best opportunities and here's a guide to getting there.

Instructions 1.

o 1

Become a stage manager. This sounds challenging, but many colleges, high schools and community theaters look for people to volunteer for the role. Colleges often pay for the position in the form of a student job, so you may need to be a college student. Getting this job gives you some exposure to all things theater.

o 2 Study your craft. Lightboard and soundboard technology changes, but the concepts remain the same. You'll also find that curtain and stage devices are similar, if not the same, in many different venues.

o 3 Seek opportunities in other venues. Don't let yourself stagnate in the college realm when you could be volunteering or getting paid for community theater work.

o 4

Remember your responsibilities. This means that you need to have a back-up in case you get sick, you need to attend all rehearsals and you need to constantly be working with your crew to make sure they are well trained.

o 5 Communicate effectively. The people with you need to know when to do what they do, and if there are any changes. Keep developing these skills throughout your career.

o 6 Listen carefully to the cast and crew of the performance, taking care of their needs. This isn't at the expense of the other aspects of the show, but the cast members having their needs met is essential to a good performance which will enhance your reputation in the industry.

o 7

Arrive early before a production to take care of any last minute details and to supervise setup.
