The MFA Stage Management Program trains qualified students for careers as stage managers in a variety of professional performance environments.

With an emphasis on artistic collaboration and creative leadership, students are encouraged to develop individual management styles while working in close partnership with their colleagues in the MFA Producing and Production Management specialties. The CalArts emphasis on the development of new voices and new forms gives stage managers the opportunity to reinvent themselves and their approaches to production as they enter and transform the field.

Each semester, students work as stage managers and assistant stage managers for productions presented by both the School of Theater and the CalArts Center for New Performance.
