Description - Stage Management by Gail Pallin

The highly successful ""Bible for any stage manager"", now in a revised and updated edition.
The stage manager is at the core of every successful theatre production. He or she organises, manages and runs rehearsals and performances; researches and procures the props and furniture; and provides a creative information flow between the production and design departments.
This handbook is aimed at students, graduates and all those who aspire to stage management, whether amateur or professional, on a large or small scale. Complete with illustrations, diagrams and helpful checklists, it takes the reader through a typical production, week by week.
Other useful topics covered are:
. Team dynamics and job roles
. Theatre unions
. Health and Safety legislation
. The job market
. Information and communication technology
. Production templates
. Management techniques and interpersonal skills
As well as updated information and resources throughout, this new edition includes two brand new chapters: case studies of professional stage managers and producers working in the field, and an essay on creativity in stage management.
