    How would I go about doing such a thing?

    When I went for my interview the portfolios I saw all had extracts from scripts they had been working with, prompt copies and 'thank you' letters for helping out - that kind of thing.

    Mine has prompt copies of a project I did in my first year of university as it's the only prompt copy I ever kept and that wasn't ridiculously messy and battered. It helped me get into LAMDA so it can't have been that bad
    It really depends on what you've focused your experience in. If you're more into lighting I'd bring lighting designs or photos of shows you may have done lighting for etc... Basically anything you've done that involves stage management and that is tangible put in a folder and take it with you. Don't know where you've applied to but LAMDA require you to talk them through your portfolio whereas RADA in my case didn't ask for it even though they say to bring anything you have. If I hadn't mentioned my portfolio to them they wouldn't have asked to see it.

    Hey,

    I am applying to drama schools for Stage Management now.
    I was wondering whether you brought whole prompt copies to your interviews, or just extracts (and if extracts, how many pages).

    Thanks
