Best of the Village

Typically, when someone is pursuing a degree in Musical Theatre, they are considering being an actor/actress, stage worker - lights, costumes, writing, etc.; or perhaps musical composition for the theatre. And the other major occupation would be to teach musical theatre. I have a good friend who does that very job. He teaches musical theatre (drama) for a high school. But he had to obtain his degree in Education to pursue licensure to teach. ..so his degree is in Theatre Arts Education (secondary/high school). While this type of degree is not "in demand", there are plenty of people who want to do this type of job. Just know that working in Entertainment can be very competitive and not very stable at times. Working as a teacher can offer more stability, but again, can be competitive as well. Not all high schools offer Drama as a subject matter. And some schools may want you to have a Master's degree. Do lots of research in your particular area of interest. Research schools who offer the kind of degree you're interested in... talk to someone who's working on their degree in the field and someone who has graduated and is working in the field. Your high school or a college admissions office can help put you in touch with these folks. Break a leg!

You could work in theatre production, teach acting/theatre performance, direct musicals, and even choreography if dancing is one of your strengths.

Min. Leslie’s Answer

Maybe a conductor of a band. You should master musical notes. Also, teach music in high school or entry level college.
