At SMA We advocate for and support stage management in all aspects of live events and theatre work: creative, practical, contractual and interpersonal. We work to maintain high standards in our work, decent terms and conditions for all stage management, and for making a positive contribution to world class live shows and events made or shown in the UK: supporting excellence in performance. We stand up for mutual respect, open communications and fair dealing in all aspects of backstage work. We provide resources and information to assist everyone who wishes to start a stage management career. Our membership process is open and fair, and we support members in finding work and during their working contracts. We are a PIPA partner and Stage Sight member, and stand for opportunity and diversity in the workplace.
