I came to high school wanting to be a stage manager and I have continued through that to now.  I'm graduating from college this May and pursuing opportunities in Stage Management.

I have wanted to be a stage manager since I was in 10th grade.  I did a year long generalized apprenticeship at a professional company in my city for my first year out of high school before beginning post-secondary.  In this apprenticeship, students work in all departments, including: props, marketing, play development and stage management.  I wanted to be an SM going into the apprenticeship, and I had heard that most apprentices changed their minds during the season.  Not me, if anything, I am more committed to being an SM for the rest of my life.  I am now a second year university student and SMing a school tour.

I wanted to be a stage manager since high school.  I went to college specializing in stage manager.  Once I graduated I decided to not be a stage manager, took a year off and now just stage manage a community theater production here and there.
