    I am Kyle, of Minnehaha academy in minneapolis, a member of the shrinking tech crew. I do a little bit of everything from the usual rigging and light hanging to running (and a little designing of) sound and mic wrangling. Each year we do about 5 productions, including a Madrigal dinner of epic proportions, the occasional musical, and this funky 'student showcase' which is a collection of student directed 1 act plays. Our school just changed TD over the summer, and the theater director left without warning, so we have been going through a bit of chaos, with temporary directors and all.I really find being on the tech crew to be a good experience, as well as a bit of fun. The reason I found this forum was because a friend suggested it on our own private tech forum. Glad to be here!

    When you say "shrinking tech crew" does that mean you guys are all getting smaller ? 'Cause, Honestly, that could come in handy. You could run around all under the platforms and help find squeaks, run cables under the stage... that would be cool !

    Welcome to the Booth Sideburns! The search function is your friend and will help you find all kinds of good stuff in the archives... and don't miss the Wiki too.

    When I was a high school teacher I had a wonderful resource for work like that... called freshmen. ;)
