|BFA in Technical Theatre in California is being discussed in the ControlBooth Education and Career Development forum; Hey Guys and Gals, Looking for up-to-date suggestions on Tech Theatre school in California. I have heard Cal State Fullerton ...|
What are you looking to get out of the program? Are you looking for a general education or do you want to specialize? Do you have financial concerns?

What use is knowledge if there is no understanding?
I really enjoy both sound and lighting, so I really couldn't pick between the 2. And yes I dont come from rich stock. nor are my grades scholarship worthy yet.
But.... Any tech theatre program that is worth your time will require you to take classes in costumes, makeup, props, scenery, rendering, and just about anything else they can think of. Most schools require you work in either the scene shop or the costume shop every semester... no matter your major. Most require you to work in both shops for at least a semester. So, if you go into college thinking "costumes are only for sissys", better not go at all. Its because of my time in a costume shop that I can sew. It is also because of that time I know how to talk to a costume designer and not sound like an idiot.
Finally, if your grades are not top notch, your finances are not the best, and you don't think you would like some of the college theatre programs... you should probably read this thread:Is College for Me?
dont get San Diego Uni, mixed up with South Dakota Uni, not the same thing at all...
That it would South Dakota state u has a "theater program" consisting of acting.... Acting, oh and more acting.
