Welcome, Lily!


My name is Lily and I'm a stage manager in the United States for now. I'm a nomad that moves around wherever the wind takes me, and I hope to move to the U.K. to go to grad school in the next year. I've been using the SMNetwork as a guest to find answers to questions for so many years, but I only just now signed up, and I'm glad I did! Hoping now I can provide answers for others on their SM journey too. In my free time (which is abundant nowadays) I like to read and write, and I even have a blog dedicated to stage management & travel! One piece of trivia I recently learned is that Traverse City, Michigan is the Cherry Capital of the World and it produces 40 percent of tart cherries in the U.S.!

USITT hosted a series of webinars about producing online performances...If you are a member, you can look it up in their online catalog of content. It was called Lessons Learned, and was a series of 3 discussions about how 2 different companies produced online shows.

(There are tons of informational videos available to members there if you're looking for something to do!)

TYA/USA is offering a free-to-all webinar next Monday called "Creating Immersive Theater for Families Online: Behind the Scenes of THE WIZARDS OF OAKWOOD DRIVE with La Jolla Playhouse". You can register on their website for the link.

Welcome, Paige! We'd love to hear about your experience at KCACTF - there are a couple of threads about it over on the College and Graduate Studies board.

Rough business with the sewage smell! A theater that I worked at years ago had this same problem - when the sewers dried out in the winter months, they became very pungent. It became part of the preshow to pour water down all of the basement drains. Glad you guys figured out a solution!

Hi and welcome, Collette! It's a tough time for stage managers (and teachers!). I'd be really interested to hear about your experiences. Any favorite productions that you've worked on?

Hello Everyone,
My name is Collette, and I am a stage manager from Vancouver, Canada.
I've been a CAEA stage manager for about 8 years, and work primarily in opera and musical theatre.
I am an Adjunct Professor at the University of British Columbia (UBC) where I teach stage management.

Have you had a conversation with your SM asking exactly how you can help? Specific job assignments could lead to a conversation about individual strengths, which could segue way into individual weaknesses, which would help in a variety of ways. If you have tried before, this situation about not CC'ing the SM with the paperwork you sent out (which you most definitely should have) may open the door to revisit the topic of how you can help your SM.
