So I started rehearsing for a play this week & it reminded me what a kick-ass Training ground Theater can be.
I think we forget when we get too deep into Film & TV how valuable theater can be for #upleveling our career, because we're often working on 100+ page scripts.
So many times when we're starting in Film & TV, we're getting 2-3 page scripts...heck even when we've been at it for years, we may still be working on those. And that's not to discredit those opportunities, but you've got to get to a point where your Memorization skills are off the chain!
I work with so many Actors who get stressed out if they get 5 pages or more for an Audition, so the question really is...
What are you Training for?
Are you Training for that Co-star today or are you Training long-term for a Series Regular where you've got 30 pages/night to tackle?
So I encourage you...go do a play. Remember what it's like to master 100 pages of dialogue & you'll start to look at your 5 pages for Film & TV like it's nothin' ;-)
If you're new to this community come join us over in the FB Community Group & build relationships with Actors who are like-minded.
I hope this is a blessing to you!
