Stage Management

“We can’t picture being anything but show people. Civilians find the whole thing quite bizarre.
But that hum in our hearts when the overture starts helps us know how lucky we are.” —Curtains

That quote just about sums it up: there’s nothing I love more than that moment when the lights go down and the orchestra starts.

I am an Actors’ Equity Association (AEA) Stage Manager with an obsession passion for musical theatre, dance and Shakespeare.

Besides theatre, I also stage manage live events like TEDx conferences. Check out the Events & Conferences page on my consulting site for more details on that sort of thing.

Here’s what some of the people I’ve worked with in the past have to say about the experience:

“Sarah is an exemplary Stage Manager, with considerable organizational and people skills. Her technical and artistic knowledge are well suited to her position — and the fact that she also has an impressive design background helps put it all together.

I recommend Sarah quite highly!”

~Doug Moser, Director, Stamford Theatre Works

“Sarah is the perfect balance of attention to detail and easy-goingness that should be the hallmark of any Stage Manager. She is able to keep everyone on the same page, in the loop and on schedule while never losing her cool and always maintaining a friendly demeanor. She was a pleasure to work with and I hope to do so again.”

~Simon Feil, Actor, Bee Luther Hatchee, Stamford Theatre Works
