What do you need help with? I act on stage and would LOVE to help you! I do need more details though, what your message says doesn't really give me enough of what's going for me to help you out.

Ok, I am a actress but I'm not famous.
I am a drama, romantic, comedy actress.
First thing to do is always make sure you have the proper props for your production.
Like if you are doing a forest theme you would need prop trees etc.
Make sure the actors you have are going to put their mind to this, and be able to come to the rehersals.
Nerver go out of the way to make your porduction great, do the best you can if you try to hard someone may get hurt.
Make sure you have tthe right clothes for your actors.
You might need an asstintant, but make sure they will do the job.
you need a stage hand, person who works on the backstage.

I hope these tips will help you.

Plays are hard to put on - and being the director means everything on your shoulders - but don't worry, it's soooo much fun once you get it started.
 
I have been acting since I was 6 and I know how productions role. (hahaha, sorry theater joke) First - Auditions. Pick parts! (But make sure there are not to many parts ecspecially on your first play) or you could just round a group of friends and just give out parts that wouldd suit them best.
Second - Rehersals. Set up rehersal time that go well with everyone's schedules. And make sure you have a good rehersal place to do it. ( i.e. a large empty room at your house or if your lucky enough to have one a theater)
Third - Costumes and Props. Decide on costumes that will fit a suit the actors and their characters. Get props ahead of time so you'll be ready to reherse with them.
Fourth - Start! Those are your basics for getting a play ready. Good luck!!!

   Well, do you have characters? Have auditions, than see who is most comfortable portraying which character. I wouldn't really considering myself an actress (I've starred in one 1st Grade play and 1 school musical, where I was the awesome old lady who beat people up with her cane and also a Mockingbird).
    Try to plan things out, that way it won't be such a jumbled mess.

I am a pro at acting I would have to say.....But i have only been  and angel in 3 nativity stories Violet in Charlie and the chocolate factory The queen of hearts in Alice in wonderland and the maid in catastrophe kingdom and 1 of the two headed dragons in Egyptian treasures and Jill in cheaper by the dozen.

 

I would suggest breaking the ice and first day of rehearsals make a day of acting games to kind of get people to get to know each other and make friends so no one is really like stiff and nervous. When i was in Cheaper we did a game every morning.

 

If your writing a script as a group let everyone get a chance to put an idea out there and try to incorporate it into the story! EXAMPLE:

 

A dog is trapped in a bubble and needs to find a way out.

 

IF SOMEONE IS OBSECCED WITH HORSES MAKE A HORSE BE IN A BUBBLE NEXT TO THE DOG SO HE HAS SOME HELP GETTING OUT. EXAMPLE:

 

A dog is trapped in a bubble and needs to find a way out. Along floats a horse who is also trapped in a bubble......

 

See what I’m saying? OK I think that’s enough for now. BTW Always have fun. that is what acting is there for you to have fun and for your audience to see you having fun and have fun with you. Kinda like that laugh with you not at you saying but then again not so much.

First of all, I need more information. Is it a dramatic script, or an advnturous one? Are you a director that is known across the country, or an inspiring one that does little works with groups of friends? I direct, write, act, and sing. I know the works of the stage. I've been in multiple huge community plays, and I am going to be in a Disney role next semester. But above all, more information, please!!!!!!
