Arena Stage (Washington DC)
Lead Sales Associate
Impact of degree on career choice and current opportunities
My time at Queen Mary taught me to take risks; I moved away from my comfort zone of production into other drama related destinations.
At Arena Stage, I coordinate front of the house services including ticket sales and membership administration. I also help with ushering and dealing with lost and found property. In addition, I assist with staff training and management.
Advice to current students
Jobs that are directly linked to a degree in drama are hard to get into. You should aim to apply for those which broaden your skills and give you access to useful contacts in the sector.
