I'm looking for some advice on how to present myself.
I've done lighting and sound since early high school, and continue to do it in college. I'm a junior at a small liberal arts school. I'm a double major in polisci and environmental studies with an econ minor. I'm also the head of technical coordination for our campus/events center. I did theater work my freshman year, but it was a very conservative department with a hobby of knock-offs (abridged romeo and juliet set on the south jersey shore in 1970 set to 'period authentic' music).
I spent my sophomore year in new york taking an advanced LD course and an advanced sound for theater course, but mostly I spent 10 months working for the show Sleep No More (joined just as install was about to start). Was LD for a show at Double Edge Theater in MA.
I'd like to take a few years between college and grad school (not sure if theater technology or political science...) to do more high quality theater, but on paper my theatrical resume would be kind of a mess. Coming from this sort of background, how would you approach theater companies or production houses? Anyone done something like this before?
