Christina: “In other words, it’s our fourth year in the group.”
What got you interested in tech theatre?
Amy: “I found out about the techies in orientation, and at first it was intimidating. I had been involved with theatre before but not the tech side. It was the most significant experience of my freshman year, and continues to be till this day.”
Christina: “I did tech stuff in high school. I had a friend who did Techies Union when I was in high school…I became an eboard member by the second year.”

Amy: “Creatively technical, but also awesome…I would say magnificent.”
Christina: “I would say exciting on many level.”
What would you say to people who want to join Techies Union?

Christina: “Try it out, no experience required.”
Do you think you’ll continue in tech theatre after college?
Christina: “Absolutely. It’s what I plan on doing at the moment. The shows we do will never happen again. That’s cool to be a part of and you get to meet so many cool people working towards a common goal, which is the show.”
Any closing remarks?
Amy: “The show is going to be fun and we have a lot of events coming up, and keep an eye on techies union because there’s a lot more coming.”
