I am a senior in High School with passing grades and a good amount of experience to back me up. I want to go into Technical theatre as a profession. Now the time has come that I need to decide what school to go to and what degree to get. I want to try and get the best paying job I can in the future without a crippling student debt afterwards. I want to get a BA in technical theatre and theatrical design, however most of the schools that offer that are $$$$$$. I live in the chicagoland area and would like to stay in Illinois and in the chicagoland area if I can. I am looking for advice on what you think I should do to best help benefit me in the future and help me be successful. so if anyone wants to share what they did, what they think is the best plan to choose or maybe have some reccomendations as far as schools or programs I would really appreciate it.
