My friend is a freshman in college and she is majoring in media and communications?

but she also wants major in theater because she is very interested in acting and stage directing. She is skeptical about changing her major because she heard a lot about the myths by majoring in theater does not gurantee instant sucess plus her father believes theater is a waste of time but she really wants to study theater. I told her she can minor in theater but she wants two degrees plus she said the workforce does not look at the minor she believes double majoring gurantees more marketabilty. So I am asking anyone can she double major in theater and media business and how is double majoring going to be like for the college student especially for her pursuing two rigourous fields. She is getting a Bachelor in Science for Media and a Bachelor of Arts for Theater will that make a major difference.
