What goes in a Stage Managers kit? Those items are listed below, but also, a quick discussion about who supplies what for this kit and why.
Recently, my cast attended an 80 minute long workshop on oppression, led by the Community Programs Manager at the theater. It was great to witness and incredibly powerful for our cast to experience. I've seen EDI training similar to this become more and more common in theater across the nation. Theater is no exception to the problems so highlighted in Hollywood right now, which was actually proceeded by the Not In Our House movement led by the theater community in Chicago. The recent issue concerning yellowface at the MUNY sparked national attention and many theaters have spoken out. Representation is a huge issue onscreen and onstage, along with providing access to communities that normally are not so welcome in our audiences. But theater is making strides, in more areas than one. I am proud and hopeful.
