The Biggest Show
There are some disadvantages to being an actor. Waiting by the phone like a fifteen-year-old girl is one. However, it does have its advantages. Like participating in the Big Shows of the Young Storytellers Foundation, which are an absolute blast.
The YSF is a 501c3 charity
which brings writers and actors into LA’s arts-poor public schools
for mentoring in storytelling. In one-on-one sessions writers help students create a short play over several weeks. Then, at a Big Show in front of the students’ families, actors
(lots whom you’d recognize
) are brought in to perform the plays.
They’re moving, nonsensical, and hysterical, often all at once. And the actors are encouraged to cut loose. We’re often told not to worry about having an honest moment. (Talk about freedom..)
