WHAT DOES AN ASSISTANT STAGE MANAGER DO? The assistant stage manager is the go-to person backstage who answers all calls for help during the show. During the run of the show, the ASM is assigned a specific track that may include performing pre-show checks and setting props or costumes. Courtesy of getinmedia.com.
FIRST SHOW AT STAGES? Yes!
FAVORITE SONG FROM THE SHOW: Step in Time
WHY SHOULD PEOPLE COME SEE THIS SHOW: The cast is unbelievable! From day one it was obvious how well they would all work together to create a mesmerizing show!
INTERESTING OR UNIQUE CHALLENGE ON THIS PRODUCTION: I will get to help fly people in harnesses during the production, which I’ve never done before. I’m excited to learn how it works!
WHAT DO YOU ENJOY MOST ABOUT YOUR JOB IN THIS PRODUCTION: So far I have loved getting to know the youth actors and seeing them give every new song, dance and scene their all.
HOW DID YOU GET STARTED IN THEATRE? I did some theatre camps and school plays throughout elementary and middle school, and started to get more serious about it while acting in shows at my high school. I was required to stage manage a show in order to major in theatre in college, and realized then that I loved working offstage even more than on.
WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE A STUDENT THINKING ABOUT A CAREER LIKE YOURS IN THE THEATRE: Seek out opportunities to try working in as many different areas of theatre as you can. Even if something doesn’t turn out to be your favorite, understanding the work that goes into each aspect of a production will help you be a better collaborator in future shows. And you never know when you’ll stumble upon something you love!
- FAVORITE KIDS BOOK: Harry Potter!
- FAVORITE COLOR: Purple and Blue
