Stage Management Workshop

10am - 4pm
Stage Management Workshops TAPAC

This workshop will train participants in Stage Management by working actively on a sample production from the first read through to the final pack out.

Skills gained through the training include problem solving, time management, conflict resolution, budgeting, scheduling, and team work. These are skill sets that have a broader relevance, not only in theatre, but the wider employment environment.

As part of this training programme participants will have ongoing support and mentorship with the aim to support participants to find their own work in the industry.
