If you have ever wanted to be in the spotlight but have found yourself deterred from taking on the challenge of an audition, then I have the perfect solution for you. While the glitz and glamor of acting on stage is what catches most people’s eye in the theater, it isn’t always possible to get on stage, whether that be because you couldn’t land the part, or didn’t have the confidence to take on an audition. Thankfully though, there is a way to engage with the theater that doesn’t involve performing for an audience.

Take it from me, someone who has been in both the cast and crew before, working in a theater crew is a great way to build up the confidence and know-how needed to nail that next audition.

Here are four upcoming musicals set for movie adaptations that will hopefully join the ranks of those legendary revivals.
