Do you dream of becoming an actor but can't afford Drama school? Read on..

An ode to all aspiring actors

I call myself an actor
I went to drama school
We wore all black and got the knack
Of looking like a fool

We studied the works of Shakespeare
Lay on our backs and wailed
We analysed our play texts
And were frequently told we'd failed!

So now I'm in the real world
My advice to all is this
If you want to act then do so
You need to follow your bliss

Many greats never studied acting
They learned the ropes on set
They became big household names
And saved a ton I'll bet!

So get out there and do it
Don't worry if you fail
Just be yourself, and tell the truth
And on to success you'll sail

There are so many actors
But there's only one of you
You were born to enjoy this life we live
So go on I dare you!
