    Theater Manager & T.D.
    Seattle, Washington
    Just got this message on the L&SA e-mail list...
    I thought it was interesting to point out that there are three good jobs here in the theater industry. All prefer a technical background but your non-theater skills are really more important. I know there are a lot of young people out there reading CB who would love a career in tech theater but you know what we can't all be roadies on national tours or the TD at the local theater. However, there are many good jobs like these in the industry where you can put your love of theater together with your other skills in accounting, sales, writing, business, engineering... whatever they may be.
