What was your favorite part
of Boot Camp?
"I feel almost like a different person in a way. There are so many things that I learned that I just had no idea that I didn't know until I knew them! Everything I learned is going to allow me to be better at working in a team and provide more confidence. My favorite part is just that I was able to be there because everything that happened was valuable."
Would you recommend
"Definitely! It's a lot of fun and if you like stage management, you'll love it. I think anyone in this profession needs a class like this to refresh what they know."
"Yes! Everyone needs a place to talk about what they don't know. It's a MUST for anyone remotely interested in stage management or beginning as a PA."
How is Anne
as an instructor?
"Anne did a truly fantastic job facilitating the week. It is clear that [she] loves what [she] does and is very capable at it."
"UH-mazing! I love having Anne as a teacher. Her teaching style is very clean, open, and honest and I really appreciate that."
"She was energetic and approachable; I very much felt like she was having a conversation with us about the broad scope of the stage management world."
Very useful knowledge not made generally available to most SMs. You can't swing a cat without coming across an acting class or an audition class but stage management training is hard to come by. Anne is a very knowledgeable and experienced SM who devoted a lot of time to developing a course, textbook and in-class activities. Definitely recommended, especially if you're interested in joining a union at some point.
This boot camp is well worth your time! In an intimate atmosphere, you have the opportunity to talk, listen, and do some hands-on work. It's a great workshop for anyone brand new to stage management, or those with experience who want to expand their skill set, garner new ideas from others, and network.
Not only does Anne have an incredible amount of wisdom and experience to share, she is also a joy to learn from! I gained so much practical knowledge about production and all things stage management in SM Boot Camp, and I also appreciated the sprit of excitement and love for the work that Anne brings to the course. I can't recommend this course enough to any SM, or anyone thinking about a career in production!
