Volume Title
As a student at Alfred University, I have expanded my skills in the theatrical world over the past four years. During this time, I have found a passion for stage management, as well as the many tasks the job entails. While at Alfred University, I realized that the resources for stage managers, although vast, were not the best fit for a first time stage manager, or someone with limited knowledge of the job. For my thesis project, I have decided to create an easy to follow guide and reference booklet for new stage managers. In doing this project, I hope to make it easier for students who are interested in stage management to be able to easily understand where the title of stage manager came from, what a stage manager should do, and what added skills a prospective stage manager might want to have, especially at Alfred University.
Thesis completed in partial fulfillment of the requirements for the Alfred University Honors Program.
