Theater for many people involved in arts and aesthetics might not seem a lucrative option. As a popular notion stands that people in theater hardly lead a life of comfort. This is as much a misconception as any other. Theater can be a really good professional choice if you have a passion for it and are ready to undertake a bit of struggle. As any other job, theater requires full dedication and devotion. There are many positions in theater that can be applied for.
These are divided into different categories such as backstage, stage-designer, sound engineers and many more. Other than the technical side, one can always be an assistant director, director, actor, script-writer, choreographer, etc. All these job options are obviously related to the talent an individual possesses. Other choice is that of being a Theater critic. For this the individual has to be aware of cross cultural theater, technicalities of theater, etc. It is a highly respected job profile but to reach a particular status as a critic, one has to write and watch theater extensively and intensively.
