Actors’ Equity Association will commemorate the Year of the Stage Manager February 16, 100 years after a landmark decision that encoded the place of stage managers in the union.
To mark the occasion, Equity is inviting members to share their stories working as or with a stage manager on social media. Equity will dedicate its social media February 16 to sharing these stories about stage managers, who make sure productions run smoothly and professionally.
From the beginning, stage managers became members of Actors’ Equity. But only seven years into the union’s existence, on February 16, 1920, the union has its first record of recognizing a stage manager as a distinct part of the organization.
