Starting a Career In Entertainment Later in Life
There are amazing opportunities for middle aged and older people in entertainment. Baby boomers don't want to watch teenie boppers on TV or listen to 13 year olds sing about love. Grown ups want multi-dimensional characters that represent their ideals, experiences and aesthetics, and producers of entertainment are taking notice.
The appetite for age appropriate entertainment means that now is a great time for middle aged and older people to embark upon or return to a career in entertainment. If you have ever wanted a career (or hobby) in television or film, theater, radio, comedy, arts, performance, dance, music, or writing, this is a great time to start.
