There are many jobs in theater and art, and even jobs that combine art and theater! For example, if you like to design, you can become involved in scene design. Lighting designers work with lights for shows and can work in theater as well as music (if you have been to a concert, you have seen the work of a lighting designer in the various patterns of lights.)

What you want to do in order to get into these fields is make certain you go to a college that has an internship program with a local theater. This way, you would gain experience and make contacts in the field in your upper level years, which will help you become employed shortly after graduation.
