Management 101: Being the manager you want to be

Made me think more seriously about management and the importance of thinking about it in the creative industry.

It is really inspiring to learn from someone with an interesting and valuable history and, especially, updated!

I will definitely continue to learn at this wonderful online school!

Introduction to the Production Process

I thoroughly enjoyed this course, it provided excellent insights into basic production management, and it was wonderful to be able to also talk to someone in a dedicated session. Highly recommend

I first met Antonia when she was teaching at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama. We recently worked together on a production of City of Angels at the Royal Academy of Music with the graduating 2018/9 MA Musical Theatre students.

She is a tremendous stage manager who is passionate about the work on and off stage. She loves a challenge and is uniquely gifted when it comes to motivating and supporting her team.

Her enthusiasm for training young stage managers sets her apart from others. Her ability to problem solve, nurture and support whilst driving a rehearsal room and technical rehearsal forward make her a dream for a director to work with.

She cares about every detail and takes pride in perfection. The fact that she has so much experience in every department of stage, company and event management is a huge bonus, but it is her ability to articulate and demonstrate the attribute required to do these jobs well that makes her a superb mentor and teacher.

 

I have worked with many people who have trained under Antonia and you can tell by the way they go about their business that they have been trained by her. She supports and maintains a relationship with them long after they have moved on or have been working in the business. She helps them to be better at their jobs but she also helps them be better people too.

She would always be my first choice to work with.

I was very lucky to have had Antonia as a professor at Florida State University.

Her extensive amount of professional experience and love for stage management makes her an amazing professor. Not only does she teach the technical and organizational skills needed for stage management, but she gives students the opportunity to reflect and grow as a SM emphasizing the question -  

What kind of Stage Manager do you want to be?

Antonia’s work with students develops their skills as confident managers, assists them in creating a collaborative approach to the rehearsal process, and helps them to hone their skills as valuable members of a production’s leadership

Antonia Collins has been an incredible teacher, mentor, and stage management advisor.

She helped me become a more efficient stage manager in regard to sending emails, filling out rehearsal and incident reports, and my communications with directors, designers, etc.

Antonia also helped me grow to be a more confident and assertive stage manager.

I am so grateful for all of her guidance and advice!

 Graduate Director - U.S.A.

Antonia truly embodies “servant leadership.” She sets a calm, capable, and confident tone in any room and leads her students by example.

Antonia knows when to let go and allow her students to take the helm and when guidance would better serve their learning processes
