Prompt Book
« on: Sep 12, 2007, 01:56 am »
Okay... so what all goes in a prompt book exactly? I know this is possibly the dumbest question ever asked on the boards, but all I have so far is my script, contact info, and character/scene breakdowns... Prop lists? Anyone have any examples of papers I need for my prompt book?

Have you checked through the Uploaded Forms section of the forums?  There's a lot of examples there to help get you started.

Of course, bear in mind that many of the items there are for very advanced productions and professional work, but there's a lot there that applies for even the most rudimentary shows.

I would check out this thread on Books and Tabs.  It has examples of how different people organize their prompt books. 

Best of luck to you!!

There are several books available at Barnes & Noble - some specifically for Stage Managers, others like general stagecraft probably have a section on stage management.

For quick advice, look around the table at your next production meeting.  Every department should have it's own section in your book (set, costumes, lights, sound/music, etc...)
