In order to be a Theatre teacher what degree would I need? Would I have to teach about musicals and dancing? Would I have to learn those things in college?
This concerns me because I can't sing or dance...
Have an Answer?

Generally, a Bachelor of Fine Arts, and a teaching certificate; or a Bachelor degree in Education with further studies in Theatre/performance/etc (MFA) would work.
It will depend on your state, as well, in terms of certifications for teaching.
The curriculum will depend on your school; so, for example, many colleges have Theatre AND Musical Performance AND Dance as separate programs. For K-12 that might not be the case, since departments/faculty may be limited.
