Musical Theater Performer


Singing: You can carry a tune. Perfect pitch wouldn't hurt.

Acting: You can breathe life into your lines. Wooden delivery won't cut it.

Dancing: You're physically sturdy. And you have rhythm.

It helps if you are better than best, too. What gives you a fighting chance in musical theater is guts, grit, and ambition, and a gigantic ego.
