The exciting careers you can have on stage

Studying for a career in the performing arts and theatre is a great way to land yourself in a role you love. A passion for the performance tends to develop throughout compulsory education or after school clubs, when you graduate from your degree, finding a job you love is a rewarding achievement that will give you the working life most people dream of.

However, it is essential to remember that there is a lot of competition for these types of careers. The reasons why vacancies fill fast is because it is common knowledge that these are the life goals of thousands of passionate performers. 

Over time, many performers decide that working behind the scenes is more suited to them, but for those desperate to stand in the spotlight, the fight to stand in centre stage is difficult and requires a lot of dedication.

There are a variety of careers that will allow passionate performers to stand on stage, including:

  • Acting
  • Singing
  • Dancing
  • Musician
  • Comedian

The options are vast. Within each of these roles, there is a possibility to perform in theatre, TV or even films. Actors could end up in the West End, or in Hollywood. Singers, musicians and dancers could be signed by a label and spend time touring the globe to sell-out stadiums, singing in centre stage or performing breath-taking routines.

Are you passionate about performing, or do you dream about standing on stage in front of hundreds of people? If so, then a Performing Arts and Theatre degree at the University of Bolton is a great way to start your career. You will have the chance to learn from industry experts and benefit from strong links with the Octagon Theatre Bolton.
