Hello All, I am writing a paper for my english class on Technical Theatre/ Stage lighting and I would love it if you could answer any questions possible. Thanks, Drew 1. When did technical theatre/stagecraft first come about? 2. Who were major contributors such as Stanley McCandless? 3. What are safety practices? Why? What are the hazards? 4. What are theatrical effects; how are they produced? 5. What is new and emerging technology? 6. What Broadway shows have influenced and broken boundaries, such as Hair (1969) openly using microphones? 7. How have plotting, auto CAD programs, hand plotting, and computer rendering affected technical theatre? 8. What are stage mechanics? How do they work, and what role do they play in technical theatre? 9. What unions preside over the industry? 10. What dose it take to get into the industry? 11. What is the hierarchy of Broadway Shows?
