SM Boot Camp:
An Intensive Stage Management Workshop
This is a one-week stage management intensive designed for stage managers who are looking to refine and add to their skill set. We spend the week focusing on all things stage management. It's great for those who are looking to make the leap from non-union to AEA, become more confident in their abilities or fill in any gaps in training.
Class sizes are intentionally kept small (3-10 students) to guarantee a personalized, one-on-one experience.

What past students have said about the course:
What was your favorite part
of SM Boot Camp?
"I feel almost like a different person in a way. There are so many things that I learned that I just had no idea that I didn't know until I knew them! Everything I learned is going to allow me to be better at working in a team and provide more confidence.
My favorite part is just that I was able to be there because everything that happened was valuable."
Would you recommend
"Definitely! It's a lot of fun and if you like stage management, you'll love it.
I think anyone in this profession needs a class like this to refresh what they know."
"Yes! Everyone needs a place to talk about what they don't know. It's a MUST for anyone remotely interested in stage management or beginning as a PA"
