Spring Tech Workshop: The Director/Stage Manager's Process (Code 111)


with Heather and Em

Calendar Apr 23, 2024 at 6 pm, runs for 4 weeks

Class Times: Tuesdays from 6pm-8pm

Meeting Dates: 4/23, 4/30, 5/7, 5/14

Grades: 8th-12th

Location: SPARC

The Director and Stage Manager relationship is a unique collaborative process that most youth do not get to experience before starting their pre-professional careers; it is also integral to the success of a production! How does a show go from page to stage? What decisions are shared by the team? What does each role do? How does a design element reflect in the overall vision of the show? Where does a Stage Manager flex their choreography (scene change) skills?

In the Director/Stage Manager's Process, students will spend 4 weeks working on group scenes in which they will share the roles of director, stage manager, and scene readers/actors. This workshop will focus on one published work that participants work to bring to life. 

Youth interested in getting involved with Stage Management or New Vocies for the Theatre at SPARC are encouraged to join us for this workshop.

Get to know SPARC through one of our free Pop-Up classes! Pop-Ups provide an easy opportunity to learn more about what we do in longer-term SPARC classes.

Pop-Ups are one-time workshops offering an hour of exploration through different technical theatre lessons. This class is a great choice for young people who love to build new things, bring their ideas to life, and get a messy along the way. Youth who are interested in learning more about technical theatre are encouraged to participate! No prior skills or experience are necessary. Pop-Ups are also a great way for young people to connect with new friends who share an interest in performing arts. 

SPARC faculty and staff will be available after Pop-Ups to offer information about upcoming classes and opportunities for students to get involved.
