Program leads young New Yorkers into technical theater industry

NY Daily News: Parents rejoice — there’s now a Roundabout way for young New Yorkers to find their way into a lucrative career path right in the city.

An innovative new program aimed at getting New Yorkers jobs in the theater industry is training 18-to-24-year-olds on the art and craft of working backstage — and paying them to learn the tricks of the trades.

The goal is to teach youngsters the high-level skills needed to work in theater and on Broadway — and funnel them into the industry’s good-paying, union jobs, the program’s creators said.
