Anschutz Entertainment Group (AEG)

AEG is a wholly owned subsidiary of Anschutz Company and operates numerous divisions dedicated to sports and entertainment presentations. Among other ventures and properties, AEG owns or controls facilities such as the STAPLES Center, Home Depot Center, American Airlines Arena, and NOKIA Theater Times Square. The company also owns several professional sports franchises, including the Los Angeles Kings, Houston Dynamo, and Los Angeles Galaxy.

Live Nation Entertainment

Live Nation was born out of Clear Channel Communications as a concert promotion company in 2005. The organization expanded its dominance of the live entertainment promotion and marketing industry when it merged with Ticketmaster in 2010.

Associate Sound Designer

The associate sound designer is an assistant and apprentice to the sound designer on theatrical productions and live events. This person aids in the development of all audio elements, as well as collaborating with the stage manager and crew of audio technicians.

Lighting Supervisor

At a resident theatrical company or on a large touring production, there is usually a lighting department supervisor.

Lighting Console Programmer

The lighting designer typically hires the lighting console programmer (sometimes called the moving light programmer) as an assistant with the express purpose of programming the show during the rehearsal phase.

Press Agent

Press agent is the formal title given to members of the Association of Theatrical Press Agents & Managers, though members and non-members alike wear the synonymous moniker of press representative. These individuals work on theatrical productions as part of the larger marketing initiative that includes paid advertising, promotions, and press relations.

General Manager

Once a producer has secured the rights for a theatrical show or other live event production, his or her next step is to hire a general manager. This person oversees all aspects of mounting a production on behalf of the producer, particularly the business and financial concerns.

Producer

In live theatrical and stage entertainment, the producer is the individual who initiates the development of a show. This person is tasked with fronting the cash or raising the necessary funds and is ultimately responsible for all aspects of development, including hiring the cast, crew, and other staff.

Company Manager

The company manager is hired by the general manager of a theatrical or live stage production, and is primarily responsible for managing payroll for the cast and crew and numerous other logistical concerns. As the person who signs the paychecks, the company manager is very popular, though not always as well-loved as policy enforcer or bearer of a termination notice.

Production Manager

“Creatives,” or those who are concerned only with the artistic details of a project, tend to have a difficult time editing their imaginations to fit a budget. That is where the production manager comes in; he or she is the keeper of the cash, the parental figure doling out the allowance. A theatrical production or concert consists of numerous departments and technical elements that compete for a slice of the money pie, but must cooperate to put on a cohesive show.
