Advice for a future Theatre Major
Answered

So I've done some incredible soul searching over the last four months and have decided that my most happiest would be going into a theatre major, specifically Directing & Theatrical Production. I have theatre experience as I've been a lead role the last two years (my freshman and sophomore, current, years) in my high school's drama club. I also have been helping out my director with blocking and other director duties. I really feel this is something I want to do with my life. But, I don't know where to start, where to apply, or anything like that. My family is full of math majors and they have no clue how to help me. If any theatre (or director) majors could help me out or give me some advice on how to start planning for college (extracurriculars, where to apply, etc) that would be really really cool. Thank you!!

Hi @Rose08!

Collegeboard (administrating company of SAT and AP) has a college search engine called BigFuture. You create an account and plug in your info and preferences. Then you can search for colleges with theatre majors and save them to a college list. I recommend looking up each college and checking out the website to see get a taste of their individual theatre programs. I did this with a different major and discovered a wonderful college for myself!

Hope this helps and lmk if you have any questions. The internet will give you lots of information if you look up theatre majors- same with related ECs.
