Career in Acting


A theater actor performs in plays and other types of live productions, such as skits, dinner theater and cabaret shows. Sometimes, they go on tour. Actors have a talent for performing and entertaining others. With the most common venue being a live stage, theater acting does not include the benefits of multiple takes and editing that film and television actors enjoy.
