Hi everybody. I searched for a forum to jump into as I try to help tech the new Merryman Performing Arts Center in Kearney, Nebraska. The only full time paid staff (and she's only paid for part) is the Executive Director. There are three of us, (one's a high school student) trying to handle all the tech responsibilities as well as hold down full time jobs. And we seem to get in each others' way. (screwing with the lighting patch and focus so the next person with an event is clueless) We have a state of the art lighting system. Decent sound. Counterweight fly space. A rep light plot that is a mess now. And no real leadership. Since opening in October we've handled everything from tours like Clifford, to the local 4 person bar scene jazz ensemble. It's usually whoever stops in the office on any particular day gets asked "are you available to help with such and such next week?" Sometime there are tech riders, often not. I'm hoping to find some people who can relate to running a Roadhouse most of all. And is there anyone else that doesn't hire a regular Technical Director in their Performing Arts Center??? Are we crazy? Is this a scary situation? Help! I need a Friend!!
