Author Rich Dionne reframes the theatre production as a project and provides essential tools for understanding and managing it efficiently, whether it be a stage play, an opera, a dance piece, or other performance that requires the collaboration of the artists and artisans creating the visual and aural landscape for it.

Project Planning for the Stage is organized into four sections corresponding to the life cycle of a theatre production: defining the goals and scope of the production and assembling the crew; planning, estimating, and scheduling; executing and managing; and closing and strike. Each section focuses on relevant concepts and skills and outlines the application of effective project-planning procedures and techniques-including critical path analysis. Dionne provides essential tools for tracking and monitoring a project's progress and uses examples from different theatre genres to illustrate these processes in clear and concise language.

This book is a valuable addition to the libraries of technical managers in live entertainment. Technical directors, costume shop managers, master electricians, properties masters, and video supervisors-anyone managing even part of a production-needs to understand project-planning concepts such as knowing the boundaries of authority and responsibility, parametric and bottom-up estimates, and precedence diagrams. The incredibly useful and powerful tools outlined allow any technical manager to deliver the best possible outcome for a production.
