    Technical director MFA

    I've been giving thought to distance learning programs in this field and I have to say that maybe this would work for bits and pieces, but a BFA or an MFA is really an applied degree. I don't think I could see the merit of a fully online/distance scenario. You need the time actually in the...

    Looking for colleges with a strong projection, and possibly LED screens, program.

    Automated Fixtures What has training come to?

    Sometimes we have these arguments here at work, doesn't matter about what, and in the end my buddy Kevin will lean back and say "yes, it's all a rich tapestry now can we move on." What someone needs to know to take a given gig is going to vary gig to gig. What will be included in a given...

    Looking at colleges. Need help.

    I'd flip it the other way. If you are *certain* you want to go to grad school then I wouldn't do theatre for undergrad. I'd do theatre IN undergrad, find a program where you can still do shows even if you aren't a major, and take your summers and do summer stock; but I wouldn't major in...
