I am having a BLAST with this. It's more fun than I could have possibly imagined. I will spare you the details, but seeing a script become an actual thing is very enlightening. I get excited over incredibly stupid things like getting to wear a flamboyant scarf in a "funeral" scene because it gives me something to do with a free hand...

Every morning, I ask myself, "What the hell is wrong with you? Why are you doing this? What were you thinking? You can't possibly keep it together for this!"

Every evening, I show up for rehearsal, start working, and forget ALL that shit I said in the previous sentence.

This will be good.

Is there not a little bit of acting every time your face to face with a customer ?
I have more questions than answers

Not just customers but just about everyone else it seems like. Act like I'm excited for them, act like I care about your relationship problems, act like I care about your problems while I have my own to worry about...

Yep.

Now do it in front of 100+ people you've never met who've paid $30 apiece to watch you do it. I get to pretend to be a dance instructor (among other characters, but this one has the most lines and impact). I know absolutely zero about dance, including the terminology in my lines. I also get to be a little flamboyant. The movie says Pete's not gay, but in this adaptation, it's not clear.

Hah ill do you one better. Do it in front of 400 people who paid $15 a piece to see the show some you know most you don't while wearing a clock costume that is about 3'x3' and ways about 50 lbs and then walk up and down a flight of stairs that you have about an inch of clearance on while talking in a British accent making corny clock jokes and get paid nothing. This years wasn't so bad though. I got to be an iron worker and a mason so...I played myself I guess but two years ago was the year of the clock and I couldn't wait for the time to be over for that one. I wish it would have ticked away faster.

Take it from me , do not get sucked in. Sure it's fun, but you probably will not make a living doing it.
I am a technical director, for a small theatre in Indianapolis IN, and I see all kinds of people trying to make a living at acting.
