How it Works

Each year at SETC’s annual convention, stage managers from all training levels gather to compete in a round-robin of timed events that include:

  • writing cues
  • recording blocking
  • taking line notes
  • taping a plan
  • checking presets

The top three competitors advance to a finalist round. Winners are announced at the Design-Tech Award Ceremony at the convention. Up to 25 stage managers can sign up to compete on a first-come, first-served basis. Anyone attending the convention may participate. There are no fees, just fun.
