Hello everyone at ControlBooth.com! I have recently discovered this website while browsing for online theatre resources and consequently it has become my home page. I'll introduce myself as Smatticus; I am a junior in high school in upstate/central New York and I have been involved in both our community theatre as well as our high school theatre in the last four or five years. I started in the theatre working backstage and have since made my primary focus lighting. This year our auditorium installed a brand new ETC lighting system so, being the only experienced person in operating the board (our community theatre has an older ETC board) I have been the only person really interested or involved in lighting for the school. As I have been involved in more productions I have been able to work with the technical director of our community theatre and have even been able, recently, to lead the lighting design for a show. As I am thinking about my future plans I am interested in learning where a career in technical theatre might lead. In addition I am seeking to learn more about the professional world of technical theatre, as our community productions are very far from professional at times. :wink: Outside the theatre my interests are racquetball, webpage design, marching band, movies, and the piano. I joined ControlBooth.com maybe a week or so ago and I have since been procrastinating about introducing myself, as well as other things, but I am interested in the experience and information there is to be shared by being a fellow user of the site. Thank you and I look forward to being involved here at ControlBooth.com!
