Becoming an Actor/Actress
Find every opportunity in your traveling distance that does Plays or Musicals!. Check the schools and community groups as well as professional!. Contact them and ask to be notified of any auditions!.
If you do not get a part, offer to help in any way (paint scenery, usher etc!.) Just being around the production you will learn a lot!.
Study Dance, Music and Acting!. You must be able to do at least one great and the others well enough to let the others work around you!. Find classes or instructors that have produced talent!.
Work on your image!. You have to be a go getter, with lots of confidence and at the same time come across as humble!.
Develop work ethics!. Never be late!. Never be absent!. Always be attentive!. Always show respect for others, even when you do not think they deserve it!.
If and when approached by a talent agent or agency!. Check them out carefully!. If you are too young to sign a contract, remember your parents will need to be very involved!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

Your teachers/coaches should be able to give you tons of resources!. I'm typically leery of internet castings - there's no way to tell if theyre legit or crazies trying to kill you until you show up!. Ask around locally!. Good luck!Www@QuestionHome@Com

the stage newspaper is good!. Or on the web!.Www@QuestionHome@Com
