Go over and above on your studies. Be a servant and work for the good of where you have been sent. That makes a huge impact as a Christian in a non-Christian workplace. I myself have worked with several midsize theatre companies in the LA area, including Actor’s Co-Op and the Antaeus Company, in many different capacities, and have been invited to audition for both companies. I have started a small black box theatre in my hometown and have successfully opened my first show there. I have also worked as an assistant director in several small theaters in the Santa Barbara area and have been invited to direct shows there in the upcoming year.
