2009 Stage Management Survey Results!
« on: Jan 15, 2010, 03:01 pm »
The results of the 2009 Stage Management Occupational Trends Survey are now available at http://smsurvey.info.

The 2009 survey had 525 participants from 37 states.  The survey included questions about calling techniques and show management, and were further analyzed by union affiliation, age, experience, training, and gender.  For instance, the older the stage manager, the more likely that she/he creates a back-up copy of the calling script (51.9% of 61-70 year olds, but only 25.8% of 26-30 year olds).

If you have questions for the 2011 survey or would like more information, please contact david-mcgraw@uiowa.edu.

Thanks again to the SMNetwork for helping to promote this survey!

Fascinating. Thanks for sharing!
I personally would like to bring a tortoise onto the stage, turn it into a racehorse, then into a hat, a song, a dragon and a fountain of water. One can dare anything in the theatre and it is the place where one dares the least. -Ionesco

Wow! What great work - and fascinating work, particularly, on age and gender stats. This confirms, in a very real way, what I've felt about how the business works as people rise in the ranks.

More wow. This is great.

Wonderful!  I was wondering when we'd see the results on that; it was so neat in '06.
I particularly love the inclusion of the comment about "stealing" from other Stage Managers all the time.  Whenever I have the chance to watch someone else work, I always come away with new ideas.
