Monday Meetings

Click here for this semester's Monday Meeting schedule.

Second stage holds three meetings with each Second Stage show in the month leading up to their performance. All members of the production team must attend.  This includes but is not limited to the director, the stage manager, assistant stage managers, all designers (set, lights, sound, costume and props), and the music director, if applicable. The requirements for each meeting are listed below.

If any of your required production team members are unable to attend the meeting, or if you cannot bring any of the required documents, please contact your General Advisors at least 24 hours in advance of the meeting.
