Greetings Region IV Stage Managers!

If your school entered at least one production (participating OR associate) during the 2018 calendar year, any student who stage managed a production on their campus during that calendar year is eligible as a Stage Management Fellowship candidate.

To qualify, you must be registered for the Festival   as an individual AND separately, register EACH of your stage management entries, exhibit your materials (Prompt Book), participate in an interview, and complete a festival assignment which may include one of the following opportunities: timekeeper for various events, ten-minute play festival stage manager, Saturday Night Gala stage manager, etc. You will get to collaborate with your peers and network across many disciplines.  Stage managers need to arrive in the early afternoon of Tuesday, February 5th to turn in their books and make it to orientation.  We look forward to working with you all.
