Content: Most important is being a good communicator and listener. You spend most of the time listening to other people’s conversations for little snippets of potentially important information regarding the production and then sending notes to all departments with requests for custom assignment writing , lighting, sound effects etc. With this, comes discretion - you get told information which can be private (medical conditions or personal circumstances which don't need to be public knowledge, occasionally famous actors addresses and telephone numbers which should not be made available to anyone else). As a stage manager, you are expected to be a fountain of all knowledge - from where the closest bank is, to where the nearest car park is, how much discount there is on tickets and many other day to day things which aren't technically part of a production.
