Stage Management Survey
« on: Oct 17, 2018, 02:13 am »
Hello All,

I am trying to make an anonymous survey that the cast, crew, and design team completes regarding the Stage Management Team and if they have any criticisms or ways to improve. Does anyone have any suggestions for what I should be asking?

Thanks in advance for your support!

The theatre I work for uses Google Forms to collect Artist Surveys after closing.  it populates there responses into a Google Sheets doc.  Completely confidential and anonymized.

Wow. I sure hope the SM team gets to complete a survey on the cast, crew, and designers for the same reason.

I am curious how the idea for this survey came about.  I think it could (maybe?) be helpful but its results should be given limited weight.  Remember that the SM team works for the Producer and not for the cast, crew, or designers. 

It's certainly helpful to get perspective from everyone on your team, especially as to how your decisions and "bedside manner" impact them - but would this be more effectively done through relationship building and honest conversation; and during the production as opposed to after the curtain has come down for the final time?

Wow. I sure hope the SM team gets to complete a survey on the cast, crew, and designers for the same reason.
