Stage Managing

A Stage Manager’s job is particularly important. A valuable book about this topic is Stage Management by Lawrence Stern. To the left is a link to the prompt script from Skint, showing how prompt books indicate to the stage manager, light and sound operators when to change the lights, sound, etc.  It is also a Stage Manager’s job to note where the actors are, keep a running list of entrances and exits, costume, sound, and property plots, keeping a master calendar, etc.  I have also included on this page a link to a video of a stage manager calling cues for the play Stop Kiss.
