I would suggest you visit . You'll find many threads discussing the differences between stage managers, production stage managers and production managers. It varies slightly by organization, but it will give you a good overview.

Typically the production manager is involved with the administration aspects of the show. Cast housing, transport, contracts, budgets, purchasing and payroll. They do not call they show, nor do they attend rehearsals. Interaction with the stage manager is usually around administrative stuff.
