Unlocking Doors: Inclusive Leadership in Stage Management

Dominguez, Caitlyn Annelise

As diversity in casting continues to be a topic of intense concentration, stage managers should expect to work with more diverse casts in the years to come. As differing identities in the rehearsal room become more commonplace, stage managers will be called upon to develop an interdisciplinary approach to our vocation; insights from identity studies can help bridge the gap between artists accustomed to homogeneity and artists belonging to historically underrepresented groups.
Specifically, this thesis draws upon academic texts and interviews with working theatre practitioners in order to provide an overview of the intersection between stage management and disability, as they currently relate to each other.
