Actors aspiring to a successful stage or screen career need more than talent, training, and luck -- they need to know the business. How to Become a Working Actor is a practical guide to the business side of the acting profession, from putting together a compelling "P&R" (photograph and resume), to the dos and don'ts of dealing with casting directors, to exactly where the work is and how to get it.

A ten-city acting guide offers actors alternatives for training and experience. In an illuminating introduction, renowned New York actress Tina Johnson, a working actor for twenty years, provides valuable insight into the profession -- how actors can get more work and become better performers by coming to terms with who they really are (and aren't). Chock full of useful tips, resources, addresses and phone numbers, How to Become a Working Actor is indispensable for all budding thespians and stars of tomorrow.
