What Does It Mean to "Work?"
By creating a community and immersing yourself in it, the ensemble mentality builds and your network strengthens. Instead of brunch on a Sunday... Get a group of friends together and read that play you've always wanted to read, get everyone to throw $5 into the pot and bring a snack. You'll be increasing your knowledge of literature and who knows... $5 grows and grows then maybe you can look towards a production. How about getting some sides and practicing your on-camera audition with friends. Watch back, learn about which angles work for you and most importantly for the camera so that by the time you walk into that audition, Boom! You're more than ready.
