× So, you just agreed to stage manage your best friend’s Fringe show – NOW WHAT?!?

This three-hour crash course in stage management for the Fringe Festival is perfect for first time stage managers and those seasoned veterans wanting to brush up their skills. This hands-on session will teach you how to set-up your calling script, place and call cues, and use your tech time effectively. We’ll also discuss some organization and leadership techniques so you can spend more time at Old Market Square and less time trying to find lost props.

All you need is your script, a binder, and a great sense of humour!
