Congrats Charc... you just got to keep asking around. As you know from hanging out around here there are a lot of really nice people in the industry who love to help out the next generation. You'll be amazed how many people will say yes if they can. The big union houses can be a little tricky to get permission to hang out at due to union rules. But if you can it's great. Did I mention the student I had who talked her way to a private backstage tour of Miss Saigon? Just be polite and friendly you'll be amazed how far it takes you.Hey gaff... I landed that the other day.
Our school's TD is a founding member of a local equity house, and is the director of the last show in their season. He talked to his "lighting guy" who said I'm more than welcome to come over and chill (not his exact words ) during one of their lighting sessions. This should prove to be interesting. Now all I need to do is convince the director to drive me out there too... Oh well.
