Let's face it - as an actor we need stage time. It's precious. I never understood this while I was doing improv. All we needed was a few chairs and a few friends watching us and there was show. I did some time in the "bar-prov" scene. But stage time where you let the lines live in you and you doing the same script over and over again. This is a great place to get this precious community.
Go out there! Audition audition audition!!! Get that stage time! Start treating yourself as the professional you are.
