Employment / Non SM jobs for former SMs
« on: Apr 04, 2017, 11:19 am »
I love theatre, but am looking for a more stable and full time job outside of the theatre world.
What types of jobs have people looked into or gotten that utilize the same skills a SM would have?

Tools of the Trade / Fire Retardant Costumes
« on: Feb 10, 2011, 02:06 pm »

Has anyone ever made their own flame retardant coating?

I am working on gig with fire dancers and jugglers and we are only using the costumes for one performance and don't want to spend a lot of money and effort flame proofing our costumes (especially since we already have the costumes).

I found a recipe online using a mix of Borax, Boric acid and water that you soak the costumes in and lasts until the next time you wash them.

Has anyone ever used this method before? Does it work?

Any info or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.



College and Graduate Studies / Masters Degree in Austraila
« on: Dec 29, 2010, 01:13 pm »

I am looking into getting a Masters Degree in Stage Management and/or Arts/Entertainment Management and I want to do it in Australia.

Any information on programs or schools would be much appreciated.

I am working in a small (about 100 seat) theatre with very senestive smoke alarms. They have gone off when we tried to use a Fog/Haze effect before.

Does anyone have a suggestion for an alternative way to get this effect that wont be an issue with smoke alarms.
