I've been in my High School's theatre department for just under a year now. I got involved last year when they called out for tech help for a musical. I figured, what the hell? I went to one of there rehearsals. I ended up as that production's stage manager. I've since SMed another musical and a one-act play, as well as miscellaneous design and lighting. I more or less rule the small, informal tech department now. (I'd like to expand it into a stagecraft class for next year, but we never get enough signups and the school always drops the course... maybe something extracurricular?) Saw this forum and just thought I'd drop in.
