I am in 11th grade, and it seems like it would be a good time to start thinking about what schools to look at. I want to go to a theater conservatory. I do not want to have to take math and english and history and science for anything outside of theater (the physics of sound waves/the physics of electricity, etc). I want to major in lighting design for theater's, but I want to still study sound and stage management and set design and run crew things and all of that stuff. As I said, I want to go to a small conservatory school for technical theater. I'm looking to go somewhere in the North East, but will go somewhere else depending on the school and where it is. I know that SUNY Purchase is a really good school, but I can't go there because I live only 20 minutes away from that school. I really have no idea where to look at schools. A friend I have who is a senior went down to North Carolina to look at the arts conservatory down there, and told me a lot of REALLY good things about that school. He is going for acting, but asked about the tech program as well for me. Does anyone have any suggestions for what schools to look at. The only schools that come to my school to talk are liberal arts schools, which are great, but its not the type of program I'm looking for.
