Advice for roaming character?
I haven't been given a spot in my house yet, and when we open next weekend I'm may ask my boss if I could work as one of the roaming characters who keep the guests entertained while in line. Is there any advice you could give me for doing this type of role, and is there anything I should know beforehand? Any and all advice is greatly appreciated! :)
Advice I give my que line actors
The biggest part of que line acting, is make sure you get a character that you can be in all night. Something that is comfortable and natural to you. Because a large part is improv, if you make it something natural to you, then you can act and react from the gut without thinking too much. I have my guys do a mini backstory with information that would help them respond to customers. Like, how did you get the way you are? Where are you from? What's wrong with you? Why do you act the way you do? It gives you a purpose and makes you more focused! I also find that the costume has match your story and your makeup, head to toe. You will actually "feel" when you are complete. That part is hard to explain. LOL
