The Broadway Stage Management Symposium is re-booting the popular pandemic webinar series, SM Tech Fridays! In the very challenging days of the pandemic shutdown of theater, the Broadway Stage Management Symposium produced 49 free webinars for stage managers. Hundreds of stage managers connected, learning alongside each other online, growing our community and our awareness of new products, technology, and services for stage managers. The classes directly lead to the very successful online conferences and current hybrid format of the BSMS annual conference.

Starting April 21st, BSMS will host a free webinar with one of our many great partners sharing the latest and greatest innovations and products to help stage managers be more efficient and effective leaders. Each week will focus on a different program, app, service, or product designed to help stage managers practice our craft.
