Employment / Telephone Interviews
« on: Apr 03, 2013, 10:44 am »
I recently had a phone interview for a PA position and for the duration of my conversation with the PSM my phone was cutting in and out and I had to run around my house to keep from dropping the call. I also had to ask the interviewer to repeat his questions several times because the connection was so poor. This is a job I feel perfectly suited to and although the connection was horrible, I feel that the interview went well. I am still concerned that I came across as distracted and do not want to miss out on this opportunity because of a technical issue. Is this something that anyone else has had to deal with and how can I make sure that the problem with the phone does not ruin my chances of moving on in the interview process or potentially being hired by the company?

Employment / ASM vs. PA

What is the difference between an Assistant Stage Manager and a Production Assistant?

I'm applying for a PA position and wanted to get a clearer idea of what I should expect. I have worked at theaters that use PAs as 2nd ASMs, but I'm not sure if this is standard operating procedure.

Hello everyone!

My name is Amy and I'm an early career stage manager. I began working as an SM in college, dove right into a full-scale production of Godspell first crack out of the barrel as a mid-term project for a stage management class and never looked back. I worked steadily through the remainder of my college career on large scale musicals. Additionally, I was an SM for two summer children's theater productions and had my first professional summer stock experience working as an ASM. After college, I completed a Stage Management internship at the Guthrie Theater in Minneapolis and stayed on as a child supervisor for several months. At the conclusion of my internship, I moved back home and was able to stage manage a university production of The Glass Menagerie followed quickly by a community theater position where I worked as an SM on three consecutive shows in a three week period (one full-scale musical, one musical review and a one woman one act). My next adventure will be working as an ASM at The Lost Colony starting in early May.

I'm hoping to use SMNetwork as a tool for making connections and gleaning as much knowledge as I can from the many forums. It's my goal to spend some time traveling across the country from theater to theater to learn as much as I can from as many different sources as possible before settling down at a regional theater I can call home. Thank you for your time and I'm excited to see what comes of this!
