Stage Manager Training
Become a Venue-Certified Stage Manager and get involved behind the scenes.
Each year, we run a free training course allowing members of our user-base to become Venue-Certified Stage Managers.
Stage Managers (SMs) provide further autonomy to our musical community, allowing groups to provide their own personnel to the manage various backstage elements in lieu of using a paid Venue Technician - which has the added benefit of reducing the costs to present performances.
Aside from any stage layout related duties as deemed necessary; The Stage Manager will absorb all of the Venue Technician (VT) duties:
- Backstage Fire Warden
- Health, Safety Officer
- Security Officer
- Pre and post-show checks
- Rudimentary operation of the lighting and sound systems.
Attendance is free, although capped at 20 participants. Affiliated Music Groups are allocated 3 positions for their membership base, while the final 8 positions are open for general attendance, with registration below.
Monday 25th March, 6 pm, at the Nelson Centre of Musical Arts
The course runs for around 2.5hrs and will cover all of the roles and responsibilities of an SM, in-depth.
Attendants receive a take-home resource and are certified for that calendar year with annual refreshment by re-attendance.
