Virtual Stage Management (VSM)is a powerful and simple stage management tool. VSM is a personal, interactive website that combines show management, artist accessibility and social networking in one powerful, simple, and user-friendly online application. Now, managers can supervise the action of a production while artists receive and interact with up-to-date information. Information is incredibly easy to update and access. You can store unlimited information on cast, crew, and staff to create a valuable resource. By eliminating a majority of the time spent producing paperwork, artistic staff members are free to manage more important aspects of the arts: good communication and while supervising your production.
