As reported by Vulture, Wicked composer and lyricist Stephen Schwartz has stated that a movie based on the Tony Award-winning musical is “gearing up.”

Going Through a Stage: Joe Ruffner

Imagine working on a show that never closes—ever. It sounds like a stage manager’s nightmare, but it’s a dream come true for Joe Ruffner, who was initially hired by The Second City in 2003 to stage manage its now-shuttered Cleveland operation and again in 2005 to stage manage a touring show.

Show People: Tiffini Chow

In the world of performing arts, the term juggler may conjure of up images of a smiling and dexterous showman, happily navigating multiple air-bound bowling pins for a living, often as part of a traveling circus caravan.

Live entertainment and theatrical productions are embracing the use of digital video and projection with increasing frequency. Audiences expect towering video screens to offer close-ups of the band for the people in the cheap seats, and the integration of multimedia into traditional theater has opened up an entirely new dimension of visual artistry on stage.

Video Camera Operator

If you’ve got a passion for being behind the camera, but a love of live entertainment, you don’t have to give up one for the other. There are numerous opportunities for video camera operators to work in concert touring, traditional theater, theme parks, and sporting events.

Multi-camera shoots, live productions, and sitcoms each present unique challenges unlike that of a movie.
