Stage management manual for the Ball State University Department of Theatre and Dance : an honors thesis (HONRS 499)
This manual was developed to be the guideline for all stage managers in the Ball State University Department of Theatre and Dance. This manual explains the process a stage manager must use for a show from Auditions to Post-Production. In addition, forms were created for each step of the process as necessary. This will allow for a unified approach in the department. This manual is divided into four sections, Auditions, The Rehearsal Process, Performance and Post-Performance, and an Appendix with blank forms. The first three sections also include a sample of each form as it was used in one of my shows. The information and forms found in this manual came from my experience as a stage manager in the Department of Theatre and Dance. This manual forms a unified guideline to be used in the Department of Theatre and Dance for many years to come.
