    I am a junior in high school, and want to be a visual technician(basically a person who designs and produces lighting effects for concerts or other events like that) for a living. Does anyone here have good advice like which good schools to look at and what Major would be required for this profession (I orginally thought Technical Theater, but it turns out that requires acting classes--something i refuse to do in class anymore)

    Thank you everyone for helping me deny my own ignorance.

    P.S. a school on the West coast of the US is what im looking for, but im open to other suggestions.
