Question: Is there any chance of me pursuing an acting career!?
Like many in the world, I want to become an actress!. Problem is I live in a VERY small, middle of nowhere town in Virginia and the nearest proffesional theatre company, Mill Mountain Theatre in Roanoke is closing! Yeah, just my luck! Plus there is no where remotley close to take acting classes or seek an agent!. So my only hope is that if we move back to Massachusetts where I moved from, and I drive in to Boston which is only 30 mins from where I would be living, and audition, take classes, get an agent, etc!. But that isn't going to happen for about a year and a half from now and if I don't get any experience now, I'll end up being too old to start a career (I'm 16) and everything!. So my question is, what can I be doing now to help me get started with acting despite my situation!?Www@QuestionHome@Com

Of course!. Lots of actors and actresses come from small towns!. Since you're 16, the best thing for you to do at this point is to join your school's drama club and/or any local community theatre groups that might be in the area!. If you have a place nearby where you can learn dance and voice, try and do that as well as it may help you later with your career!. If you don't have a place to take dance or voice and don't have a drama club, you could try and get some of your friends together and start something of your own!. Try putting on a play of your own or do a night of monologues where you all memorize something and perform it for one another!. Just keep your eyes and ears open for opportunities!. After you've gotten your feet wet a little you should be able to tell more if this is something you really want to pursue or not and you will have learned more of what is necessary to make it an actual career!. One thing that I've learned for sure is that, if you want to pursue acting, you really truly have to want it badly!. The life of an actor (especially one just starting out) is not always fun and, in my experience, not always realistic!. So, just take it slow and get your feet wet first!. Good luck!Www@QuestionHome@Com
