Stage Manager's Workshop - January 14, 2017

Every production needs a good stage manager.

The SM keeps everything on stage and backstage running smoothly, keeps cast and crew organized and happy, and solves problems as they arise.

It’s a big job but it’s also very rewarding for someone who has organizational skills and likes to be in the thick of things.

The SM’s contribution to the success of the show cannot be overestimated. Available to those who have Stage managed or interested in doing so in the future.

To register email Sue Brooks or call 519-432-1029.  IMPORTANT: For more information or to sign up for this workshop contact with name, email and phone number ASAP. There is only room for 10 participants.

We are delighted to announce that this workshop will be facilitated by Margaret Palmer!
