Coffee & Content - Playwriting Tips from Dennis Kelly & Adventures Backstage: What is a Stage Manager?

Posted by Richard "RB" Botto

Good Morning, all!

This week I wanted to take a left turn inside Stage 32 and share some content that caters to our members who are playwrights or work in the theatre. If this is you, please give us a shout in the comments below. Let us know your role in the industry!

We're starting this morning with a brew of Kicking Horse coffee. (If you haven't tried it, I highly recommend it.) That, coupled with our first video, Playwriting Tips from Dennis Kelly, ought to get our juices flowing. Writing for the stage is different than writing for the screen, although there are some similarities. But Dennis gives us an idea of what it takes to get noticed as a playwright.

In our second video, we discover ways that can help us function better as a stage manager. Be it a large production or small, organization is key. Dig into Adventures Backstage: What is a Stage Manager? and get a taste of things behind the curtain.

Remember to subscribe to the Stage 32 YouTube channel if you haven't already, and also remember to think of us and give this post a share. Or another post. Or the next post. As long as you're sharing the knowledge, everyone wins.

Have a great Sunday!
