Now that we know what a Stage Manager is, what they carry in their toolkits and about the Holy Prompt Book, it’s time to start rehearsal! While the rehearsal process varies occasionally depending on the director, a good SM knows the basics to get them going.

Hi Parents!   Yet another week has gone by in this crazy world of social distancing and we are still unable to open our doors. But RLT is still here and will remain committed to bringing you creative ways to keep your kids entertained and engaged in learning through the magic of theater! I have been having so much fun coming up with tongue twisters, fun monologues, and writing exercises. But, what’s even better, is
At RLT I design everything. Not all of it all the time. But most of it most of the time. Over the course of 25-ish years working in theatre I’ve landed upon a pretty good workflow that works 98% of the time.

Then I re-watched every episode of “Glee” and “Charmed.” It was entertaining, but not fulfilling at all. It’s easy to feast on junk food TV in this age of endless streaming content.

Stage Managers need to be organized and to anticipate. The more organized you are, the easier it will be to anticipate, even the unknown. How ominous! To do this, good SM’s create their own toolkit. These toolkits vary from person to person and show to show. Here at Reno Little Theater, we keep two: one in our rehearsal hall and one in the tech booth. This ensures that from show to show each stage manager
It’s hard to believe another week has gone by in this crazy new world that we find ourselves living in. I hope this letter finds you still practicing all the standard guidelines for social distancing and remaining safe in your homes. Since my letter, our business closure has been extended through April 30 but we want you to know that our organization is still here for you! We will remain committed to bringing you creative ways to keep
