Every kid’s dream at some point was to be a famous Hollywood actor or actress, right? However, pursuing a degree in theater isn’t the best idea today. The vast majority of people making a good living with a theater degree are in the top 1% of the field working on major performances in Hollywood or on Broadway. The bottom line is, your odds of succeeding in this field lucratively are slim-to-none. The best recommendation for students with a vested interest in Theatre is to double major – you’ll likely need more knowledge and experience to make a living before you make it big on the screens.
