Leaving the industry


Recommended Posts


this is something I have been pondering as time goes by and another year working within the industry. Would I leave or where next to go in a few years?
My history is started in theatre as crew, worked up to being a techncial manager in a few different roles. Have worked in a few non performance places - rental companies and installation.

So anyhoos just pondering the future and almost up to retirement and my stance of leaving the industry is has softened over the years. Is anyone currently working towards another career or has a plan in place for changing?

Sort of a sideways shift - about 5 years ago I moved to work as a Theatre Consultant for new buildings and renovations - so I get to apply all my specialist knowledge but in a construction context instead of doing shows.  And I finish work at 5:30 pretty much every day.   It also corresponded with a big move across the country to a different city, and needing more time free for childcare, as my wife's job at the time was time-consuming and required long hours.
