Stage Management examines every facet of this exciting and pivotal theatrical profession, from first receiving a copy of the script, through the rehearsal process and production period, to “putting the show away” after the final performance. Written for amateurs, students, and practitioners alike, it offers tips and tricks learned and used by two respected professionals. The guide covers the stage management team's roles and responsibilities; reading the play, with advice on what to look for in a text; working with the play and researching it; finding props; the rehearsal process; and stage management in performance, including the art of dealing with the unexpected. The authors are both teachers of stage management at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London.
