Theatrical Production Manager is a title that is relatively new to the theatre. While today many theatres have production managers on staff, there is no universal job description applicable to every production manager in the field. This study examines the field, the few academic programs that offer specialized preparation for a career, the available texts, and develops a comprehensive semester-long class in theatrical production management. From the research collected, a combination of methods, along with a will and a desire to become a production manager could very well be the best way to enter the field. Most of the production managers interviewed believe that education is important for building a strong skill base. The rest should be learned in practice, while working as an assistant production manager or during an internship.
