EligibilityThere is no need of graduation in any discipline to enroll in an acting school. But however there are number of institutes which provide training to sharpen acting skills and tap latent talent by emphasizing on emotional flexibility, improved perspective, extraction of subtexts from dramas, improvisations to make stage and camera free and the various other subtle nuances of stage and film acting.
Acting in theatre will teach you to modulate your voice with the clarity and mood of speech. Very few people can take acting as a profession as success depends on the contacts, public relation in the film fraternity and above all on luck.
Stage personality with innate acting skills is a natural pre-requisite. Other attributes are grace, coordinated movements with a good sense of rhythm, preferably an aptitude for dancing and singing, a good, well modulated voice with proper diction and intonation, an arresting countenance rather than beauty or balance of features, a high degree of imagination and sensitivity to get the feel of a role and to interpret it, versatility, abundant self-confidence, lots of energy, unbounded enthusiasm and optimism, resilience to bounce back from trying times and the harsh criticism from colleagues, producers, directors, mentors and critics.
Theater majors study plays and other dramatic works and their production. Classes cover such topics as theater history, back stage, on stage, playwriting, acting, and directing, as well as lighting, scenery, and costume design.
