Do you put community and high school theatre productions on your acting resume?

I was wondering about it since this is the only experience I have in acting. I've only couple of community theatre productions that wasn't the lead and a few high school productions in which I was the lead a couple of times and that's it. I'm planning on going to New York soon to try out for some plays and I need a good resume.

Yes!! definetely, its a part of your experience. Anything that you have done to practice your talent is put on a resume. Classes, performances, jobs, anything that has to do with acting you put on their. Even though you did not have the lead, you were still in it.

I think you can put anything on your resume, if you know how to spin it. So, yes.

absolutely put them. especially if your school was part of a magnet program for thespians and performing arts (like mine) then high school productions are good, it shows prolonged interest in acting as well

I think you are dreaming here. You don't go to New York and try out for some plays, taking your little resume that has listed scant experience. First, you need to be of legal age. Second, you need an agent. You don't just walk into a theater on Broadway (or off-Broadway) and say, "Hi, I'm here with my resume and I... More
