BWW Blog: Emma Suttell - A Bitter-Sweet Closing- as a Stage Manager in Training
by Guest Blogger: Emma Suttell - Mar 6, 2017

As I am writing this, I can already say that I miss the cast that I worked with terribly. There's nothing that makes my heart so full as working with forty-three 5-10 year olds who are all truly passionate about theatre. Closing this show- my first one learning how to stage manage- has been extremely bittersweet. Training as a stage manager has been one of the most difficult things I have ever done, and I have a newfound respect for everyone that works tech for any show, anywhere. I've student assisted two other shows, but Winnie the Pooh strengthened my knowledge in tech beyond belief! I'm so grateful to all of my production staff for everything they taught me throughout the show- they've all teched several shows themselves, and I am so grateful they passed along their tips and techniques to me!  (more...)
