Death of a theater actor

Prospective actors can train for this profession at a college or university’s drama or theater arts program; they can also train in a theater company’s acting conservatory. To broaden their skill set, they might take dance or music lessons. Hopeful actors should also hone and develop a unique set of abilities, including reading and memorizing scripts, physical stamina to withstand long days on the stage or set, and persistence since much of an actor’s job can involve rejection.
