An Actor's Guide
  • Ignore the stage manager, but keep him/her alert by never arriving on time.
  • Always find something to complain about, no matter how small or insignificant. Your fellow actors will respect your professional attention to detail.
  • If a line doesn't work for you, change it. Never be afraid to ad-lib to get attention, especially if you feel the leads aren't very interesting.
  • Even if a piece of shtick doesn't work, keep using it. The important thing is for you to have fun.
  • Speak your lines as if the audience had difficulty understanding the language.
  • If you can't be heard, it's not your fault. Any decent theater should have body mikes.
  • Help your fellow actors by giving them notes whenever you feel necessary, especially just before they go on.
  • Keep other performers on their toes by never letting them know what you're going to do next.
  • Always be aware of the audience and gauge your performance by how much they like the show. Why knock yourself out for ingrates?
