Calling the Show
In "calling a show" the stage manager coordinates technicians to effect changes in lighting, sound, stage set up, video or projections, flying elements, and special effects during performances. This course will teach calling skills for theatre, opera, dance, and performance art. The course will demonstrate the construction of cues and how they promote the artistic vision of the production. In-class work will give students opportunities for calling cues, and out-of-class assignments will include play reading and analysis as well as attending and writing analyses of professional performances.
This course is offered at Boston Conservatory at Berklee under course number T-SK 2051.
