About Stage Manager

The stage manager is the director’s right hand on the set, and is responsible for coordinating the crew, set, and props for a successful showing or taping. Stage manager is a term borrowed from theatre and is still used with soap operas, however they may also be known as floor managers in other venues. A stage manager’s main concerns include planning the show, giving cues, dealing with any technical issues, and carrying out the director’s orders.
