Preparing For A Part In A Play
As the play <Romeo and Juliet> ends, most of the audiences cry to tears. Plays have such magic to lead us to experience laughter and depression of life. Plays are formed by languages, singing or dancing. In order to give the audience an impressing show, there are lots of preparations before acting in a play.
Firstly, you need to have a clear understanding of the play. The background and the theme of the play are the crucial elements that can't be ignored. Only by comprehending them thoroughly can your part be real and natural.
Secondly, it's necessary for you to keep all the lines in mind. Acting is definitely not reading. Imagine how embarrassed you are by forgetting the lines, and just stand on the stage with your mind blank.
Thirdly, you have to make sure that your performance is vivid enough to move the audience. Sometimes we may complain the actor in the TV series that:" He is just acting! How unreal it is!" Yes actors do act, but actually audiences expect to be leaded by the actors as if they are watching a real experience of life. So it requires you to put all your heart into your part as if you are not yourself but the role. Practice makes perfect, you can imagine how many times those performers practice before presenting an excellent play.
In conclusion, learning the useful information about the play, reciting the lines and getting into your role are the basic steps to prepare for a part in a play. I do recommend you to see some famous plays like <Cats> to deeply feel the magic that the excellent performers bring to us.
