Alright, so I'm very interested in majoring in Drama/Theater. Ideally I would like to work on plays somewhere, not necessarily on stage either. I would just love to be around theater as a career. How hard are these jobs to come by?
Also, realizing that it is very competitive to get jobs in theater, how plausible will it be that I can find another job as a drama major?
Will employers look down on it because it isn't as academic as some other Liberal Arts majors?
I'm also thinking about English or maybe even anthropology instead or as a double major with drama. Are there any benefits to double majoring?
Also, if I want to go to a theater grad program do I absolutely need to major in drama or can I major in somethign else and then just participate in shows at my school (this would be a possibility) to get experience?
