Stage actors: advice for a performing debut?
The last time I acted in a play, I was 12 or so. In six days, I will play a small part in a short play festival—short as in the length of the plays and in the fact that they are all being written, produced and performed in a 24-hour period. My role will be small, and I’m working with 3 other experienced actors, but I think would help greatly to have some acting advice, especially a process that will get me off book, in character and that will keep me from blanking during the show. I’m not too worried about the latter, but then again I haven’t memorized much of anything in a very long time.
