As everyone who has ever done a GG&SS show knows, a good Stage Manager can be the difference between a positive experience and, well, everything feeling like a trip to the dentist. Quality stage management helps ensure an enjoyable and productive rehearsal process for all involved, which in turn leads to better productions for our audiences.
As anyone who has been around GG&SS long enough knows, recruiting Stage Managers has always presented challenges for the group. Recent pressures on the law student community to "only do law related extra-curriculars" in this tough hiring environment has made this hard task nigh impossible.
And so, the Board would like to try an experiment: offering a stipend of to help secure a (non-student) Stage Manager for the run of Cabaret. However, they are not sure they have the resources, and so the Foundation has launched this effort to see if we can't ensure the funds are there.
Please give and give generously to support this vital but under-appreciated part of a good GG&SS experience.
