Description

This poster details the process of stage managing Linfield College Theatre's November 2018 production of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. The stage manager acts as the coordinator/liaison among all members of the directing, design, and production staff. Since theatre is a collaborative art, the stage manager is responsible for creating successful communication among all members of the production staff. During rehearsals, the stage manager works with the director to record creative decisions in the form of blocking and properties notes. Once performances begin, the stage manager is responsible for calling all the technical (lights and sound) cues throughout the show. One of the primary responsibilities of the stage manager is to create a prompt book for the production. The prompt book holds all the important paperwork for the production including rehearsal reports, blocking notes, and cue calling notes. This poster includes pages from the prompt book that provide examples of the various elements involved in this production.

This project was presented at the 2019 Kennedy Center America College Theatre Festival's Design, Technology, and Management Competition in Eugene, Oregon. This project received a Stage Management Meritorious Achievement Award at the festival.
