Theatre productions take place on a stage and have very different considerations than filmed performances. Performances will be in front of a live audience – in theatres and in studios for some television shows. Other performances do not have an audience and the feedback from these performances is not instant. The workplace is highly varied, and actors need to be flexible with regard to where they work and the type of environment they work in. Actors and actresses perform, creating new worlds on the stage or in front of a camera. Actors and actresses can be the celebrities you see walking the red carpet at the Oscars, or the people who perform in a small independent play at a community center.
