Stage Manager Training
Become a Venue-Certified Stage Manager and get involved behind the scenes.
Stage Managers provide autonomy to our musical community.
This 2.5hr course is a deep-dive into the role of a Stage Manager at the NCMA.
Stage Managers take care of venue related duties and co-ordinate the start of the show in conjunction with our front of house staff.
NCMA Stage Managers absorb the show-day duties of a Venue Technician (VT).
This allows hirers to focus the limited technical hours (included in their venue hire) towards pre-production and event planning, therefore prevents the unforeseen time over-runs and the associated extra cost.
Along with any show related duties as deemed necessary, the Stage Manager is responsible for:
- Fire warden and systems check
- Health and safety officer
- Building security
- Building systems (Air Con, Lights, etc)
- Pre and post-show checklists
- Rudimentary operation of our lighting and sound systems.
Becoming a Stage Manager
1 - Attend a training course.
2 - Shadow a VT on another show to put your new knowledge into practice.
