"As my son George graduates this spring from the University of Tampa as a musical theatre major, he dreams about earning a living performing on stage. But statistics show a very small percentage of actors will actually be able to accomplish this. My uncle’s motto in life was “Always have a Plan B, so theatre majors that enjoy working with people might want to consider a career in drama therapy.

Therapists have long been using art, music, and even dance to treat their clients, and now drama techniques are also being recognized as a great way to help people from all walks of life."
