The goal of this project was to gather and synthesize information about stage managing and producing a typical WPI Masque production. The overall results are the WPI Stage Manager's Handbook and the WPI Producer's Handbook, booklets containing a concentrated wealth of information on each position. Development of these booklets involved the team researching each position and the duties it entails in textual and personal resources and subsequently taking on these roles in two different Masque productions. The team then synthesized the information it felt would be most helpful to future WPI stage managers and producers to create the Handbooks. The Handbooks will be printed in booklet form for distribution to the WPI theatre company in a future addendum to this project.
