A powerful and special place is where you learn and develop yourself. for me, this place is the tech booth. when I am there my brain just flicks a switch and I go into a completely different mode.
I could feel the power if this place from the first time I came through that door. And I knew my life would never be the same. the second time I took the class I achieved my goal was elected stage manager. In this position I was the most important and influential person in the musical. I spent my days in the booth with my headset on directing the lights, sound, and backstage crew. It is an experience I will never forget. The feeling I get when i sit in that chair and put on that headset in indescribable. And the countless lessons I’ve learned will go on to help me for years. I learned that the individual is not important and in order to pull of something incredible everyone has to work together. I also learned that when leading you need to earn the respect of the people or they will not work with you with all their energy. It is in the tech booth where I have learned many life lessons and fully experience the power of place.
