Production Notes: Stage Manager
Nevada Film Office: In theatrical productions, stage managers help to ensure that the artistic vision of the director is upheld and well executed. During pre-production, stage managers work closely with the director, production manager and technical director to keep track of rehearsal schedules, props, scripts, and cast and crew members. They record notes in a prompt book (also known as “the book” or “the bible”) about technical cues regarding sound, lighting and set changes, as well as other information concerning stage choreography and blocking.
