Theater as Community: The Art of Arts Management

  • Author(s): Waters, Christopher
  • Advisor(s): Cuthbert, David
  • et al.

Theater is an industry that many believe to be simply for entertainment purposes. I argue that it is not only imperative to the cultural health of a society, it is also a structure in which management positions help foster communities and allow them to develop and flourish. In this thesis I will describe how my work as a stage and production manager at UC Santa Cruz have helped me understand the art of theater as community and how vital the role of a manager is to the evolution of the theater industry.
