First need . Being in a play with the right group of people will be the best experience of your life. Like a bunch of pirates, all working together to
keep the pirate ship afloat. You will be spending a lot of time together. they will be your second family.
I was in a band once, and the drummer wanted to be the singer. to the point where there was no longer a drummer, just this drunk guy trying to be
eddie veder in the microphone. he even closed his eyes and was realy feeling it. Only problem was he was a better drummer, and the world all ready has
an eddie veder.
My point is this. All parts are good parts, because you get to be part of the show!
Next. Sounds like you don't have much experience. I could be wrong, so I apologize If I am. But if you are inexperienced, and acting classes do not
make you experienced. Being in front of an audience is the only experience that counts. It is scary, and if you don't have your lines memorized, or
only partially, you will feel horrible when the show sucks...
start small. Don't let your ego get in the way.
And if I went to a show where a white dude was playing Martin Luther King, I wouldn't believe it. The point of the play, is like a book or movie, you
have to let it take you away if it is good. With a play, all the parts have to work. One thing out of sync throws it to sh.t.
But I think I know what you mean. Sure, you can play him if you want, but why? It seems like the reason you were driven from the class had nothing to
do with that, but the stubbornness of wanting to make your point? am I right?
so here's my advice. Since you got the part, drop the stubbornness, or else you will clash with someone or someones in the play, and it will not be a
good experience for you, of them.
Everyone in the show is a star. Like someone above said, even the janitor has his part to play. But sure, the focus does fall on the lead, but damn,
they have the most lines to learn, and that sh.t is scary. trust me.
And, if you want to prove your teacher wrong, doing the inspector part, has nothing to do with the martin luther thing.
Just get jobs, be humble, be good, be energetic, be truthful, be you.
There is only one of you.
By the way, I searched for my password just to talk to you, I hadn't signed in in a while.
