Stage Management is an intricate web of personal, technical, organizational and life skills. The SMArts Conference explores many aspects of our field and helps us to share our experience and knowledge with each other, through interactive courses and open discussion. SMArts continues to provide a comfortable environment for new and experienced Stage Managers to perfect their craft.

This Stage Management Conference is for:

- the experienced Stage Manager who is looking for diversification within their field.
Registration is restricted to either working stage managers or those who have the goal of becoming a professional stage manager. If you are not sure if you qualify contact Janelle for clarification.
Have you ever had a chat about a sitzprobe, spacing or largo? Would you like to know more about stewards and stings and lavs? Have you used a magic sheet or rosin or a boom box? Perhaps you are curious about rush or ROEs or swings. SMArts can give you the answers to all of the above and much more.
SMArts also strives to offer the tools, the thoughts and the questions to help make our production experiences more well-rounded and fulfilling. We hope you have the opportunity to join us in exploring the world of Stage Management.
