Abstract

Arthur Miller’s The Crucible was produced in the fall of 2017 as part of the University of Iowa’s Department of Theatre Arts’ Mainstage season. Director Doug Scholz-Carlson took an innovative approach to the production adding an octet of singers singing Sacred Harp hymns.

This thesis explores the production process from the stage manager’s perspective. Because leadership, communication, and organization are essential attributes of stage manager, Katy McGlaughlin’s personal leadership, communication, and organization goals and outcomes for this production are addressed. McGlaughlin concludes her exploration with final thoughts on the production and her development as a Graduate Stage Manager at the University of Iowa.
