Production Management : Making Shows Happen - A Practical Guide, Paperback Book

Production Management : Making Shows Happen - A Practical Guide Paperback


This title takes you through the process of making shows happen from the point of view of the production manager - the person responsible for everything on stage that is not an actor.

It describes different types of productions, from small-scale amateur to international opera; the role, qualities and working life of backstage teams and finally, theatre administration.

The book includes information and tips on how to: work with directors and designers; cost productions realistically; run production meetings; oversee the rehearsal process; manage a production team; co-ordinate the building, painting, propping and costuming of a show; and lead the production week and technical rehearsal.

There are also sections on working safely together with health and safety legislation.
