Stage Management and Props

The Stage Manager is the overall "project manager" for a production, liaising closely with the Director, and managing the stage crew and production budget. The Deputy Stage Manager usually writes up "the book" with technical cues during rehearsals, and then calls the cues during a performance. The Assistant Stage Managers on a production are the "stage crew" who help prepare the production during rehearsals and then work backstage and move scenery during performances.

The Props Supervisor works with the Set Designer and Stage Manager to provide small items used on stage in a production, such as kitchen and other household items. In historical productions these need to be historically accurate and may need to be made specially for a production. A good sense of social detail is important, and the commitment to work a few days a week during rehearsals and every night during the production.
