    Hey all,
    WOW! I never knew how much stuff was on the net geared toward technical theatre. I have been involved with tech theatre at some level since Jr High School. and now im almost done with my first year of college as a tech theatre major.

    I go to Western Wyoming Community College in Rock Springs Wy. It is just a 2 year school but it has a small (only 7 tech students in the department but we are growing!!) & young but good program and a great place to get in your generals before transferring. Rock Springs is my home town so it was really the best choice for me.

    We have some pretty up to date equipment, our ligth board is am ETC Expression 3x (but we have just ordered the horizon system) and our sound board is an Allen and Heath, not quite sure what the model is on that one but it is only a couple of years old. We have several source fours and are starting to get into the intelligent lighting that can go with them. The tools in our shop are lacking though we have older than dirt tools like out disk sander and band saw. We also need new lighing in the shop, we still have murcury vapor lights so we cant paint in the shop because the colors dont look right. Our house is fairly small compares to most theatres its is aroud 500 or so. and we have 32 linesets. We have 4 electrics and a VERY Large wrap around cyc whis we watch movies on with our digital projector when we have nothing going on. We have a double light beam at the front of house (1 beam above another) ans wel as ante pro positions both in front (right above the pit) and behind the beam. We are building a new position right above the sound booth which is where we will most likley hang our 10 degree source fours. We also have some side lighting positions.

    Ahh, gotta love playing games on them too! Actually, sometime in 2 weeks, my school has thing thing called WestMunc where the students basically put on a number of mock UN conferences. Us techies have to be there for 2 or 3 assemblies, and miscellaneous AV requests.. The whole thing lasts fri-sunday. Which means 3 full days of Multiplayer HALO on two projectors and screens, with the sound patched through the sound system! W00T! I cant wait!
