    I went to audition for american mall model search yesterday, and everybody there was nice and so professional looking. They had video of model and acting and they had professional model from Disney showing us how to walk on runway before the tryout. I was really excited for audition and I just did this for fun. They picked 6 out of 15 and I was one of them. They gave a booklet about the other audition and told us we don't have to pay and we can just give them my own portfolio that I did a month ago. Is this scam or actual professional company?

    Best answer: Use of copyrighted characters and story material would require permission from the company, even though this would be a school production with a very limited run (1 performance?)

    A good example of this sort of thing would be the musical "Wicked" which is based on the characters and story from The Wizard Of Oz. They had to get permission from the author's estate to use the story and characters, which probably involved payment of some sort.

  • How much does it take to get a lead role in a school play?

    Best answer: What do you mean? Do you mean "what does it take in terms of talent?" or "How much time does it take to rehearse?" or "How much money do I need to pay?"

    Generally speaking, to get a lead role, you need to be one of the best actors/actresses and also physically fit the role to some extent. People who get the lead are generally better actors or a better fit for the role than the other students who audition.

    Being in a lead role requires more time rehearsing and more time learning your lines on your own. How much depends on the school, the role, and your ability to memorize.

    Most school teachers don't take bribes.

    Best answer: Start by getting realistic. It's show BUSINESS not a lottery or some TV competition. Companies are not holding open auditions for the "right" person off the streets. First most professional work you have to be invited to audition, usually through an agent. And there's more then one way to become an actor so there's no set steps you do that become an actor. For a professional career you're basically starting a company where you are the product to be marketed and sold.

    So get acting training from respected instructors and get acting experience. Make sure you love the craft of acting and are exceptionally good at it. Then research and learn the business end. Understand things like contracts, unions, marketing, networking and the like. Then take responsibility for your career and make a plan for yourself.

  • Southern accent tips?

    Best answer: There's more then one southern accent - it varies by region, socio-economic class, education, and the like. So a Appalachian accent is different then an Atlanta, Georgia accent. A Texas panhandle accent is different then a rural Virginia southern accent. A New Orleans accent is different then an Arkansas... show more
    Best answer: There's more then one southern accent - it varies by region, socio-economic class, education, and the like. So a Appalachian accent is different then an Atlanta, Georgia accent. A Texas panhandle accent is different then a rural Virginia southern accent. A New Orleans accent is different then an Arkansas accent.

    As an actor what you need to be is respectful of the character and their background. Use the internet to find the accent that respects your character's background. To "tone it down" don't make your character about their accent. Have your movements, how you stand and hold yourself, your facial expressions reflect the character as much as their accent.

    Good luck.

  • Why is Freemason theatrical rituals used as transformative psychodrama?

    Best answer: The Masons have always been secretive about their rituals but a few things have been leaked. For centuries, they have had a ritual not all that different from the hazing rituals of college fraternities, in which the person who wants to join has to undergo a frightening trial. We know this because, as with college fraternities, there are occasionally serious accidents.

    In the BBC docudrama The Genius of Mozart, it's said that Mozart, who was a Mason, wanted to present Masonic values in his opera The Magic Flute, and that the ordeals the hero and heroine undergo in the castle of Sarastro, based on Masonic ritual, are not just tests of bravery but are meant to teach an important principle - that there is liberation in freeing oneself from the fear of death.

    Again, one person has answered the question and is ignored by the voters.

    I've been suffering with depression for years now, and even though theatre has definitely helped~ There have been lots of set backs. Sometimes I can't even review lines/practice/get out of bed, because I'm so weak. I love dance, singing, acting more than anything in the world, but lately I've been feeling pretty numb and isolated. Any suggestions on what I can do, so that I don't quit my passion, but I can also feel fulfilled emotionally? Do you know any Broadway performers who have been open about their mental illness?

    Best answer: If you like musical theatre, definitely don't quit! Even though it seems like a lot of Broadway actors always got lead roles, many of them probably don't share that for every lead role, they probably got many, many ensemble roles. My experience with youth theatre is that they usually have their favorite kids and those are the ones who get leads. Even if you aren't a great singer, if you keep working at it and taking lessons, you eventually will be!

This is happening in Huddersfield a Yorkshire town again. Why are the authorities hiding this latest crime against our girls? Where is the outcry? Why are they hiding it? Are they embarrassed that their multicultural experiment has failed miserably? Are they worried nationwide riots could break out?

    I have a skit to perform in my drama class that stars the character hamlet from the well-known Shakespeare play. My friend and classmate, who is a high school senior and also playing hamlet, came in with his costume one day. It was a silk robe with Chinese dragons all over it. I asked him why he was wearing it, and he said that it was for his character Hamlet, who he believed was from China. I was so bewildered I didn’t know what to say. How do I tell this 18-year old that he is kind of an idiot?
