Summary "Without assuming any intrinsic prior knowledge of the theatrical field and its associated, specialized terminology, Stage Management Basics takes a look at every aspect of stage management; from reading a script for the first time to opening night protocols, including how to meet with directors and theater staff, running auditions, best practices in communication, and much more. Additionally, this book features multiple appendices containing various stage management form templates, blank versions of which are available on its companion webiste, and an American to English (UK) glossary. This book touches on the basic principles of stage management that are found in theatre, dance, and opera productions"--Cover
