Theater Work Abroad
A Chance to See Many Countries and Get to Know the Locals
For actors or theater technicians an interesting way to travel is with a touring theater production. The many options range from small-scale tours with only a few cast and crew members to ones with casts and crews in the hundreds.
Depending on the tour, you may stay in a city for one day or for months at a time. Either way, the best part of touring is the chance to work with and get to know the local people.
When touring you may stay in a city for weeks, other times you might breeze through a town. Most tours have a 1- to 3-month paid vacation break in the summer, which is a good time to travel and return to the places you enjoyed most.
To get a touring gig you don't need to be a theater master but you do need some theater experience. Most touring productions pay well and cover all travel expenses and hotels.
