At 8:00 am on Saturday, February 1st, 2020, the fifteenth-annual Stage Lighting Super Saturday all-day seminar will take place at the NYC College of Technology, home to the renowned City Tech Entertainment Technology program.
Once again, this popular annual seminar is for those wishing to learn about stage, architectural, or entertainment lighting. The sessions will not be too basic nor too advanced. The intense all day seminar will be led by theatre lighting professionals presenting sessions covering inspiration, training, product, and just doing it.

In celebration of Sonny Sonnenfeld's enthusiastic mission of training the theatrical lighting designers, technicians and sales force of tomorrow, Scott Parker is thrilled to offer the "Sonny Sonnenfeld Memorial Scholarship as my way of paying it forward. Sonny offered me a scholarship to the first Broadway Lighting Master Class and became a mentor." Parker adds "with this scholarship we will be able to welcome several students who otherwise wouldn't be able to afford the registration fee."

Richard Pilbrow will be signing his book at the annual Stage Lighting Super Saturday all day lighting workshop.
Richard says, "I started writing this book in 2007. I wanted to tell the story of times of quite extraordinary change in our world of theatre . . . but also to evoke some great excitement, times of triumph and disaster . . . and of the many magnificent people within TP, past and present, who made it ALL happen." What a great story this book tells. Richard goes on to say, "After 54 years TP survives, indeed flourishes. From under the stage of Her Majesty's Theatre, it now operates around the globe. How did this happen? Only through the talent, passion and commitment of dozens of special people."
John will be signing his book, "Show Networks and Control Systems" at Super Saturday. Attendees may buy a copy during the workshop and have John sign your copy. This book has been the industry standard since 1994, and is both a learning guide for beginners and a reference for experienced technicians.

Sonny Sonnenfeld lived a full life and passed away at 96
Industry icon Sonny Sonnenfeld died today. He was 96. In 2014, Lighting&Sound America wrote, "There is no more indelible personality in the lighting industry than Sonny Sonnenfeld." The legendary salesman and educator mentored many of the key figures in today's lighting industry and participated in the startup of many key industry companies. He was also a commentator (and sometime gadfly) for many industry publications.
