With a degree in Musical Theatre, what jobs have people gone on to pursue?
I am applying to Musical Theatre programs across the country, but am not sure that I want to pursue the life of a performer. What else can I do? #musical-theatre #career-path #music #college #college-major #musical
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!
Choreography , music, cast, budget, contractors, affiliations, payroll, managwment... etc.
I got tired..
Be specific with me and
I will be you my best!
