December 5, 2017 I had the great Idea that it would be fun to take an acting class. I found there is opportunity, thanks to the internet. A local theatre is auditioning for experienced and non-experienced actors. Stage experience or non-stage experience. Last night I was acting and dancing in my living room, it was rejuvenating. It was indeed feeling abundantly and outstandingly; just a whole bunch of knock em dead, make em laugh FUN!
It’s amazing how a person can have just one thought and find it’s possible to trust a little process and jump forward to see it come to be. The thought came to me, it was a question; “How hard is it to become an actor?” A strange thought for me but I became curious.
I did a google search, a little process. I asked google “How do I audition for an acting job?” I also chose my location. Remarkable results on my smartphone browser. After a five minute query of sites I came up with this: http://backstage.com. A great website for acting auditions with a location search. There was quite a bit in my area in Florida.
After reading some of the descriptions another lighted moment, “maybe I need training?” Next google question; “Where do I take acting classes?” The search yielded plenty of results. I liked one that was an eight week training class, once a week on Monday evenings. “Beginners, Experts, no experience” it claimed that even if you did not pursue an acting career the class would change your life. I thought about that, “it definitely would get me out of my comfort zone”. What do I know about comfort zone? Well, it causes growth.
Next, I asked googled local auditions at locaL theatres. Amazingly enough, there are frequent auditions for upcoming plays at the local theatre and they audition experienced and non experienced actors.
Now that I have this idea, where do I go from here? First i decided to write about it. So here I am reader. You guide me through this process. The seed was planted somehow in my brain. I called Mary. Not only does she approve of it, she encouraged me. So whats next? Who is reading this? Well Mr./Ms. reader tell me what’s next.
I am putting myself expectation at a bold level. A dare! Who will challenge me to fulfill this exercise? Anyone? Send me a comment, FB Like or Comment.
