So. Here we go. Thank you for looking at this page! Ok. Where to begin...
I will not bore you with the whole saga of the how, why and the when of my acting career, at least not yet. I guess I have really been amazed at the lack of resources for actors who are stressed out and needing these resources when they are between gigs and looking for jobs. We have to take care of ourselves people! I mean we ALL have to take care of ourselves but us theatre folk use our bodies and voices to produce the work, so you better be taking extra good care of yourselves. Which is where this page comes in...we are all looking for tips, right? Tips on what to do if you have a cold or tips if you are loosing your voice or tips if you have pulled a muscle but don't want to fill out of workman's comp for...some...reason. And where do you go to find the solutions?!? Other actors of course! And where do you find them? IN THE GREEN ROOM! So stay posted...More to come. "Prepare to have your mind blown..."
I'm a southern gal with liberal politics who has worked my ass off and sacrificed a lot in order to be a working regional theatre actor. There are lots of working actors who are out here grinding without begin famous. And we consider that we have already MADE it. I really like to tell stories and solve the puzzle of the text. I LOVE untangling scripts and unlocking characters. I really give a damn about the planet and am an avid gardener. I love to get my hands dirty. I am completely fascinated by fellow journey(man) actors and how we survive and thrive. Ballin' on a budget, Baby. http://www.rachelburttram.com/
