Stage Production Workers

The U.S. Department of Labor predicts little or no employment change through 2022 for those who are employed in theater companies and dinner theaters. According to the Theatre Communications Group, overall theater attendance has been up and down over the past several years, and about half of all nonprofit theaters are operating under a deficit. Thus, there are few new or small theaters that can pay living wages for stage production workers and technicians and many people working in theater production—especially at small or nonprofit theaters—supplement their incomes with other sources of work.
