Women At Work: How to find success with Theatre Arts degrees.

“What are you planning to do after college?” This is the intimidating question frequently asked of college students.  I, like many of my fellow students, fear the daunting reality of  life after college.  As a a liberal arts major, the future seems even more dismal.
