So You Are Thinking of a Career in Stage Lighting?

Although the Association of Lighting Designers was started by theatre lighting designers, these days our members work in a many other places too, and they are not all lighting designers either. There are many ways of earning a living in stage lighting and many ways into these different roles.

The one thing they all have in common though is that it can be hard to see any way in from outside. This article attempts to give some guidance to those thinking of a career in stage lighting, but it is not a complete guide - so if after reading it you want more information, do contact the Association.
