I'm a junior in high school and plan on going on to college to major in tech, lighting design or stage management specifically. And although my high school theatre program is good, I'm wondering if I would be better off working at an outside theatre. Partially because some people entertain themselves by making my pursuits in theatre more difficult than they have to be, also because high school theatre in general is limited. I've done some work on shows outside of my theatre and I have a regular job working sound and so far I've done fine outside of my school. The only difference is that at outside theatres, I don't get any experience managing or designing, just doing what I'm told, while at school I have chances to be crew chief or stage manager. So, if I have college in mind, is high school theatre enough?
