Don’t look bored as you tread the boards.
Act the part
even if a good script is lacking.
When the plot gets too thick, or thin,
demand a rewrite.
When in doubt, improvise.
When not in doubt, admit nothing.
It may be just a stage you’re going through.
Beware of splinters.
Your role may be discovered backstage.
Don’t wait for roses in the dressing room
or a ladder to reach the lights.
The Globe wasn’t built in a day.
Every act is important,
even failure to act,
even the final act.
Meanwhile, play all the parts.
