Oldham Theatre Workshop 

Stage Management Course 13+

As we are unable to deliver our Summer programme of workshops and courses at our building this year we have decided to design and deliver a range of theatre opportunities on-line.

Throughout this six week course, we will offer participants the chance to learn about the core elements of Stage Management, and specifically the roles of ASM (Assistant Stage Manager) and DSM (Deputy Stage Manager). Working with Ailsa Bonner (one of the UK’s leading Freelance Stage Managers), participants will be able to try their hand at many different elements of stage management remotely, from paper props and essential show paperwork, to cueing a show.

Stage management is an integral part of theatre making. A good understanding of stage management helps performers understand the many elements that go into creating theatre. It is also a fantastic career prospect within itself, being a creative and collaborative role.

About Ailsa Bonner

Ailsa trained at RWCMD, receiving an MA in Stage and Event Management. She has since worked in many of the UK’s regional producing theatres, including the New Vic in Staffordshire, and the Watermill Theatre in Berkshire. She has also worked for Northern Broadsides and Shakespeares Globe. Last year Ailsa was the DSM for Amélie The Musical (nominated for Best New Musical at Oliviers 2020). Most recently Ailsa has done work as a corporate show caller, and has worked as a Production Supervisor and Workshop Facilitator at RWCMD.
