This is an essential guide for young people who want to work in the theatre - but aren't sure exactly what they want to do, or how to get to do it

Many young people are eager to experience the excitement and allure of working in theatre, but often this only goes as far as imagining themselves as actors, on stage in front of an audience every night

In reality, there are many more jobs off the stage than on it

And they can be every bit as rewarding as acting - and certainly more secure because there are invariably fewer people competing for each one

Using her expertise as Education and Training Editor for The Stage, Susan Elkin encourages aspiring theatre-makers and workers to look beyond acting to some of the other behind-the-scenes options available

These include playwriting, directing, producing, designing, stage management, administration, publicity, front-of-house, stage door ...

She describes what each job entails and how you might achieve that role

There are also numerous case studies of theatre professionals describing how they got where they are, and top tips for following in their footsteps

Written in a clear, no-nonsense style, this book is an ideal starting point for students considering a career in theatre

It's also a useful tool for parents, teachers and career-advisers looking to learn more about the options open to young people interested in working in the theatre

And for those of you who really, really must, the book does cover how to get into acting too!
