Actors' Equity Association has released the following statement for International Stage Management Day on October 10, honoring the indispensable work that stage managers do on any theatrical production.
"Today we celebrate the stage managers, who are an indispensable part of making sure the show goes on. 100 years ago, stage managers became an official part of Actors' Equity Association," said Ira Mont, 3rd vice president of Actors' Equity Association. "This International Stage Management Day, Actors' Equity is fighting harder than ever for stage managers, who are having their wages and health care put at risk. The minimum we deserve is recognition, and compensation for our work."
