Without VCA or WAAPA etc?
What are other ways of getting jobs as a performer in commercial musical theatre without the obvious VCA/WAAPA pathway? The Australian theatre industry is small enough already and even then there are not enough parts for everyone! Which other pathways did you take or will you take? Why did you avoid the others? Should you risk it all for a degree in Musical Theatre or get another, non-performing degree + job whilst training on the side with workshops and classes? Would the latter decrease the chance of getting cast in commercial theatre productions? Thanks, Jen
