A stage manager (Afrikaans: verhoogbestuurder)is the person literally responsible for co-ordinating and managing all the activities (i.e. sets, lighting, sound, props, etc.) that take place on and behind the stage during rehearsals and the production. In this sense s/he supports the director, actors, designers, stage crew and technicians, making sure that the production runs smoothly, and may often s/he act as the director's representative during performances, especially on tour.
