I want to start an acting career, but the problem is I know NOTHING! And my parents are broke.
So my question is as follows:
How can I get the money to start acting classes?
Also, can someone please tell me step by step how to start this career?
If you’re still in high school, join the drama club, so you can start learning how to act on stage.
If you’re not in school anymore, audition for community theaters in your area so you can learn by doing. Or try to apply for an internship in a local theater company. Not only will you learn by watching professional actors and being backstage, but some companies offer free workshops or classes in exchange for working the box office or doing other backstage tasks.
