Can you make a career out of musical theatre?
I'm a school careers adviser and am asking a question on behalf of a year 11 pupil who wants to pursue a career in musical theatre. She understands that it is highly competitive and that, even if she finds work, she'll also have long periods of unemployment.
Despite this she wants to go ahead but has asked me what other areas of work this training could lead to. Other than coaching or teaching, I'm not sure and am struggling to find any advice or information on the internet. Any suggestions?
Also, any suggestions for work inbetween contracts, other than the obvious hospitality or temping jobs? Thanks very much!
