branching into props
« on: Feb 18, 2020, 08:38 pm »
I have been stage managing professionally for a few years and find that while I love SMing I also want to have opportunities to explore other areas of theater. I am particularly interested in props design. I never worked on props in school or professionally so I'm not sure how to break in to that or how to frame a resume/cover letter to get a props gig. I can sew very well and took costume crafts classes in school. I also do a lot of repairs and crafts in my personal life so I am good at building with various materials.

Any advice?

This is very simplistic, but you might start by walking with the  prop people on shows you are already doing. And if there are any major houses in your town, that's also a great opportunity to meet prop people who might take you under their wings.
