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.
