WELCOME TO THE GREEN ROOM
« on: Jun 19, 2006, 02:05 am »
Welcome to the Green Room forum.

Just like the green room at your theatre, this is a place to come and socialize with the other theatre folk, talking about all sorts of subjects.  It's a relaxed forum; a place with no real "rules" other than the obvious need to be respectful.

Popular topics have included:
* favorite jokes, stories or anecdotes (theatre related or not)
* how to be a working stage manager and maintain a boyfriend/girlfriend/family/a life/your health
* what you do when you aren't stage managing

There are some new forums, so check out if your post is better suited to one of those.  A question about applying for a job is best posted in "Employment"; but once you've got the gig and are looking for housing, good restaurants or observation opportunities while you're in town, those kinds of queries are right at home in the green room!

Again, Welcome!  :)

You may notice that I've "sticky'd" a few of the great and popular discussions we've had here in the Green Room.  Now they are at the top for easy finding...

As Michael and tempest_gypsy take over as moderators of the Green Room, can I get a big shout-out to nmno for busting her butt in here for the past 2+ years?

an offstage conversation

Greetings:
Please let me introduce myself. My name is Rebekah Kanduth and I work at the Las Vegas Academy of International Studies, Performing and Visual Arts. I was wondering if anyone would like to respond to a statement made to one of my stage management students by a sound designer that stage managers are not artists but rather only service persons who have no artistic value in the mounting of and calling of a show.  The argument was that stage managers are told what to do (given cues, assignments, desk work, cue placement ) and therefore do not artistically contribute to productions.  It was argued that calling is not an art.  They were told that the stage manager is not an artist and should not ever think of themselves as such.  I would like to present them with a few different views on this subject and am hoping that you may be able to assist me in responding to them.  Thank you in advance for your time.

Rebekah, we've discussed this several times recently. I recommend you try using the search for "creativity" and you should find a ton of debates on the matter. Thanks for joining us - feel free to point your students towards some of those threads for further discussion.
