Abstract or Introduction

This research delves into the diverse stage management styles and practices within two distinct cultural and geographical contexts: Nigeria and the United States. Focusing on the theatrical landscapes of Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU) in Nigeria and Villanova University in the United States, the study employs Qualitative Comparative Analysis to explore the techniques employed by stage managers and their reflection of broader theatrical norms in each country. Through in-depth interviews, observations, and surveys with experienced stage managers, directors, and practitioners, the research unveils the similarities and differences in stage management practices, considering factors such as cultural influences, educational systems, funding resources, and technology integration. The study also examines the impact of globalization on stage management, highlighting how international collaborations and exchange programs shape theatrical production methods in both nations.

As a valuable contribution to theatre studies, this research offers insights for practitioners, educators, and scholars navigating the dynamic interplay between tradition and innovation in stage management practices. Ultimately, the study seeks to foster a cultural exchange between Nigerian and American theatre communities, promoting mutual appreciation and encouraging the adoption of effective stage management techniques to elevate the quality of theatrical productions and cultivate a more interconnected global theatre community.
