Student Success

This is what #CareerSuccess looks like at RRCC!

My name is Wayne Bryer, Production Manager and Resident Stage Manager for Curious Theatre Company

What kind of work do you do? As production manager, I am responsible for overseeing the production teams that create our shows. I hire the teams, facilitate their needs, make sure everyone is meeting their deadlines and staying within budget, and oversee the venue. The job entails a range of things and is rarely predictable. A day might include anything from changing a light bulb, to participating in an artsy conceptual meeting, to major conflict resolution. As a stage manager, my responsibility is to facilitate the rehearsal and performance process for a show. It's part technician, part performer, part support, part leader. During the rehearsal process, I learn from the director and designers how they want the show to function and I support the performers while they rehearse. Once the show is open, my job is to make sure it happens the way the director+ designers intended every time. We are also a union house, so in both jobs I liaise with our union partners to adhere to ensure we're adhering to all of their regulations.

What was your major/pathway at RRCC? I studied Theatre with emphasis in Technical Theatre while at RRCC. 

Did school prepare you for this, or were there any classes that help you be successful at this job? Yes, all of the theatre classes I took were informative for me. All of the technical theatre and design classes were my favorite and I use the skills I learned/practiced daily. Theatre is also an art that best learned by doing, so the ability to work in the shops and stage manage productions here (as part of classes as well as student employment) was paramount to my success in my career.


Any other fun things you want to include about yourself and your career! It is possible to make a living by working in the arts!
