Seattle Stage Manager
« on: Jan 19, 2017, 05:51 pm »

My name is Kiera, and I'm recently moved to Seattle in hopes of working full time as a stage manager. I'm originally from Houston, Texas, and I graduated from (Fort Worth, TX) TCU with a BFA in Theatre in 2014. I initially found this site in college, and have used it many times to help find answers to various problems. From 2014-2016, I lived in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho, working in theatre (mainly stage management, but also some box office, etc.). My husband and I just moved to Seattle to have access to a larger job market!

As for a tale...One time I was calling a show from the front of the house and noticed there was a puddle onstage. While discussing with crew about where it might have come from, and a plan to get it cleaned up, my ASM interjects to let me know that one of the kids (9 years old) had peed on the stage. That was certainly a first for me!

Welcome Kiera, and break legs in Seattle. I recommend this site to every SM I come across. Have to say I've worked in a lot of children's theatre but never had that particular experience. Food for thought.

Hi Kiera! I'm a fellow Seattle SM. Welcome to the site and Seattle!
Were you able to make it to the SM networking event yesterday?
Looks like you hit the ground running by working at SCT later this spring.
They are a great company!
Feel free to send me a PM if you have any questions about Seattle.

Welcome! I'm also a Houstonian who is SMing in Seattle! I hope you're enjoying this Summer as much as I am.
