Stage Management Games

Compete in the 2019 Stage Management Games

EmptySpace Technology will sponsor the 7th annual Stage Management Games at the 2019 SETC Convention in Knoxville, TN. Anyone attending the convention may participate. There are no fees, just fun.

How it Works

Each year at SETC’s annual convention, student stage managers from all training levels are invited 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.
