Just like last year, October 10 is International Stage Management Day.
The day celebrates stage managers and the work they do to ensure smooth operations. Past ways companies have celebrated stage management day have been letting stage managers take over social media feeds, catering special lunches for them, and promoting them in programs.
“It seems to be a chance to network and celebrate all the backstage really,” Andy Rowley, executive director of the Stage Management Association told The Stage last year. “Stage managers are such a lynchpin backstage that they could hardly do it without all their colleagues—so it’s becoming more of a celebration backstage full stop.”
Please let us know how you’re planning on celebrating International Stage Management Day this year. If you want to follow the celebration on Twitter, the hashtag is #StageMgrs15.
