How much does an acting school cost ? How do I become a famous actress ?
Assuming you are interested in a full-time program, an acting school will cost between a few thousand dollars a year to over $30,000 for some colleges at the high end of the scale. A once a week acting class in New York or LA will cost between $100 and $300 a month.
There is no magic recipe to become a famous actress. Most great actors don’t worry so much about being famous as finding good roles and really bringing these characters alive.
There are quite a few things you can do to give yourself the best chances of being a working actress, though. The first thing is training, so you’re on the right track. Choosing the right acting school is very important. It will help you to develop your talent, but also to find an agent and manager, network and get performance time under your belt.
After you graduate, it’s important to take as many roles as you can. You don’t know what will lead to your big break, so go to all auditions, from off-off-Broadway to short films and commercials. As you expand your resume, you can become more picky, but stay open to opportunities.
