Student Mentor Program
Deadline December 31

Jack Feivou
SMMP Coordinator

Apply now for the Stage Management Mentor Project (SMMP), a special program designed for stage management students and young professionals at the 2007 Conference & Stage Expo in Phoenix.

Under the guidance of professional stage management mentors, SMMP participants will have private roundtables led by the mentors and enjoy plenty of one-on-one time with each mentor in addition to the programs presented by the Management Commission. Each student will have the opportunity to be part of a stage management team running major conference events such as the Tech Olympics, New Products Showcase, Fellows Reception, and Awards Banquet.

About 10 to 12 SMMP student positions are available. The time commitment is from 3 p.m. Tuesday, March 13 through 10 p.m. Saturday, March 17. All applicants must be registered for the conference at the time the application is submitted. Participants also must purchase a ticket to the banquet. The conference registration fee will be refunded to those students selected for the SMMP.

The application deadline is December 31, 2006 so don't delay.

Apply online through the USITT website or contact SMMP Coordinator Jack Feivou, producer, Walt Disney Entertainment, at 407-397-3797 or
