Theater - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support

All actors start with no experience. A good place to get started is to volenteer to help with a community theater doing what ever job they need, not nesesarily on stage. This will give you an opportunity to see what the process is, then you audition for a part in the next production.

Can you start a club at your school? Or just start an acting club with your friends. Find a few plays in the library and try reading through them.

That is exactly right. Just start practicing with a friend or sign up for a class. Why would you expect to be good at something you have never tried.

If you understand the material and the motivation of the character it will help you to memorize because you will understand why the character is saying whatever he or she is saying at that time. So find a script with a small part and begin to practice with a friend. This is something you can do on your own without going to school but it will help you if you ever get a part.

Depends on how you define "success".

There may be more adult roles available but there are far more adult professional actors then professional child actors so competition is harder. For example there are about 20,000 child actors with agents in LA. There are 100,000 professional, union adult actors in LA.

And more is expected of adult actors -in addition to knowing the craft of acting, adult actors need to handle the business end of their career as well. Child actors can focus on the craft (while their parents handle the business).

Age doesn't necessarily determine success - talent, training, experience, business sense and industry connections are better indicators of the potential for success.
