Denver Stage Managers' Association Meeting

On February 8th, the Denver Chapter of the Stage Managers' Association, with assistance from the Denver Area Actors' Equity Association Liaison Committee, presented CULTIVATING A POSITIVE RELATIONSHIP IN ALL PRODUCTIONS: A Panel Discussion between Stage Managers and Actors. The panel was held on the University of Colorado at Denver campus (big thanks to Dan Koetting for providing the space). Panel members were Equity members Erin Joy Swank, Michael McNeil, Rob Reynolds and non Equity stage manager Paul Berhorst. There were 11 other participants, including several local Equity members (Megan Enler, James Nantz, Paul Borrillo and EMC Amy Seto Musser) and Equity Liaison Committee members Shelly Gaza (Chair), Lara Maerz, and Betsey Cassell.

The panel was extremely successful and a really wonderful discussion was had about what we can all do to help each other from pre-production through the performance process. Some of the participants were young students from local university theatre programs, and we all felt it was a delight to be able to answer questions for them. We hope they will continue to explore their love of theatre and become future Equity members! We plan to have similar events in the future.
