    I'm wondering if there is an article on the importance of techies. I recently had my classes read about the importance of ensemble. No one on techies. Any suggestions?

    I can read your question two ways: the importance of techies to a production, or the importance of tech thatre to a well-rounded theatre education. I've written a fair amount on both of them in my blog (link below), and here are a few posts you might find interesting.

    Hi,

    Here is a link to an article I wrote in regard to those who work backstage and the educational merits/opportunities.

    Thanks,
