    Well then here is your official welcome wagon. Isn't it nice to stop lurking around? As you probably know, this is a great resource with great people. So ask whatever questions you have, toss out any answers you have, and make friends with the search feature.

    Hey Mrcog, tell us more about yourself. You've probably noticed we are a nosy bunch. Where are you at? What's your theater like? Got a website? Tell us something about your latest show or your upcoming season.

    Most of all stop lurking in the shadows and join the discussion.

    Ahhh. Let me introduce myself then. I'm at Kings School Ely in Cambridgeshire, Uk. Our theatre is almost non-existant but we have a half million pound renovation in the timeline but unfortionatly i wont be here to use it, unless i come back as the schools first theatre technician. Ummm, weve got 18 channels of dimming doubled up, 48 circuits situated around the venue 16 FOH and the rest on three bars above the stage. No flying system :(, no tiered seating :( My next show is a battle of the bands on the 20th June and I'l make sure I get pictures of that. And thats it till september. After september I have a couple of formal events, one contemporary music competition in the space of 5 weeks. Then, after half-term, the fun starts. We are putting on a production of 'Jesus Christ Superstar', and it's my first major musical as TD. Can't wait. Also, with our winter musical, we get budget :D, i havent been given one yet but it'l be enough to get a few bits in :D Unfortionatly i dont have a website at the moment although i may start one soon with my portfolio on it :p

    If you want to know anything else then just ask...

    Welcome Aboard! Sorry it took so long to respond somehow I missed your post. Wow 1/2 Million Pound restoration, that's like, what ? 3 billion dollars US ? :mrgreen:
    Hmm Some members here have talked the powers that be into finally hiring a "real" technician or TD to run their brand new or refurcbished facilitys, I bet you could too. Ask what you want answer what you can.

    So, let me guess, you're the one they are speaking of when they talk about a cog in the great machine?

    Welcome to the booth! Post often, answer what you can and don't forget to shut the light off on the way out!

    and some of us have failed... :(

    but I like your spelling of "refurcbished" and "facilitys"... Derek I'll call Van's mom this time if you give me the number.
