Stage management

Under the tutelage of working professionals at Syracuse Stage, you will prepare for your career by progressing through a step-by-step program, learning and applying a method of stage managing that is utilized in every major professional theater company—both here and abroad.

As you combine classroom and experiential learning throughout the course of your training, you will receive individual attention that includes an on-going appraisal system based on professional values and skills (NOTE: need to create this as a link to new pages with additional documents about the Stage Management program). You will have opportunities to participate in productions in one of our three performance spaces: a 500-seat proscenium, a 200 seat flexible space, and the newly renovated 60-seat Loft Theater.

Opportunities to deepen your training and professional preparation can be found in our London program—including our newly established exchange with the Rose Bruford College—and our Tepper semester in New York City.

Training and experience in stage management can provide entrée into a variety of careers in the entertainment industry and beyond: theater, film, television, industrial trade shows, and event management.

If you have good organizational skills, strong communication and people skills, and a belief in the importance of the theatrical art form in society, our program can help you develop your leadership potential.
