How do you get into doing technical stuff for theatre?
Currently i'm 17 and at school for another year then i hope to go and do a chemistry degree. But at school one thing I've loved doing is lighting and any other technical stuff for school plays, I do theatre studies as an A-Level and love the theatre despite being a scientist. Hopefully at uni I can do plenty of this kind of thing for uni productions. But how do you get into this job for real? Also what is it like doing this sort of work?
Well, it's best to check with the universities you are applying to but I suspect if you are interested in doing theatrical stuff you would have to do some kind of degree in that (i.e., enroll in the courses). Now, if you plan on doing a chem specialist, it would be very hard to find time for that and theatre.
