    Hey guys, i'm new here, about myself:

    *14 years old
    *Freshman in high school
    *Attending the International Thespian Festival in June
    *I do lighting design, set construction, and i'm beginning stage management. [Also got raked into tap-dancing in Anything Goes this past summer.]
    *Live in a town where everything's about sports, so we have the lowest of low technical equipment. Although, my high school has the best rated theatre program in Rhode Island, and attends state, regional, and national competitions.

    So what do you guys have to tell me?

    What do you want to know?

    Welcome to the booth Midget. There is a great mix of young students eager to learn, college students beginning their careers, teachers like myself, and old pros who have been doing it for years here. Get to know the search function there are amazing amounts of information already posted in the archives. Do a little research then ask some more questions. Somebody here knows the answer.

    Sounds like you keep busy! Welcome aboard! Ask away, we love questions, unless of course they've been asked and answered a million times already. Feel free to post in really old threads though. Some of the most interesting discussions arise fom someone stumbling across an old nugget of info in an ancient thread. Do you get to do any work with TAPS out there in RI? :mrgreen:

    Welcome from another relatively new member. I just wanted to let you know that I have a lot of respect for EDI as a manufacturer. I have an old old old Scrimmer portable dimmer pack that I got on E-bay a couple of years back and it still works better than many more modern units. I go by their location every day on my way to and from my job. They have a lot of good tech information on their web site.
