I would be very interested in the demographics of older SMs, particularly those with families.

Thank you so much for doing this survey! It is an amazing tool. :-)

It keeps us on our toes!!!

I am looking for an ASM for a show at the Boston Conservatory. It will be a musical with a medium size cast, title TBD. Dates are 5/18 - 6/7 mostly week day (12-6pm ish) rehearsals until tech. This is a paid position ($800). TBC is located right by the Hynes T stop in Boston.  Local SM's preferred as there is no housing available. Please contact me by email ( if you are interested. Thanks!

Just to play devil's advocate, it is possible that they have a strong candidate (possibly internal) for the position but are required to post it anyway.  By being ultra-specific with requirements they may be trying to narrow the applications so only the preferred person meets the bill. 
Should they do this is a different question, but it is possible that it is a very experienced hirer trying to work the system to best meet their needs.

It is not even a question.  SMNetwork is hands down a better site. I am sure Pinterest has its uses, but this is the obvious winner.

For those few of us hanging in there, here are the categories for October-

Sun - mixed bag
Mon - general knowledge 6
Tue- science and tech 3
Wed- world trivia 2
Thurs- general knowledge 4
Fri- history 3
Sat- general knowledge 5

For everyone else, please come join us!!  It is a fun way to test your wits against your fellow SM's!

Having recently done two different shows with revolves, both in smaller rehearsal spaces/moving between spaces, we found that taping the piece out on muslin and then taping the muslin to the floor with gaff (easy to rotate as needed) seemed to work pretty well.

I searched for this and haven't had any luck.  By any chance does anyone have a weekly breakdown of SM responsibilities?  I am looking for something like:

Week 1 - Prep, paperwork, copies...
Week 2-5 - rehearsals, reports, blocking...
Week 6 - tech

If you have something like this and are willing to share it would be greatly appreciated!

Thank you!

We were down to 7 players this month!!  Unless anyone has any objections, I would like to try something different with categories for this month and have all theatre (maybe a Monday day off of something else??).  Please let me know ASAP if you don't like this idea.  Hopefully it will help bring in some more players so we can all test our wits!!

At the end (~10pm) of the second back to back 10/12 we were working a particularly difficult cue sequence.  Every time we would get to the cue everyone was debating about the director would turn around to talk to the designer sitting behind him, so he wouldn't see it and we would have to reset and do it again.  The cue line for where we had to pick up the scene? "F**k this bu****it!"  After saying let's take it from "F**********t*" five or six times in a row over the god mic, I got the worst case of giggles I think I have ever had.  I was so embarrassed, but just couldn't stop.  I had to take a break and walk out of the theatre for a few mins to get it to stop. :-)
