This is essentially a collection of several links to acting resources, most of which are stolen from various places on the internet (from reddit mostly) and should serve to assist those interested in reading more into theatre.

I would highly recommend visiting the subreddits of r/theatre and r/acting from which I gained a considerable amount of the information for this page. These are forums which do have people who have professional experience and are well-informed and friendly so if you have any questions which your fellow society members cannot answer, it is worth asking on these forums

Here’s a link to the various subreddits related to theatre ranging from props to lighting. Definitely worth having a browse!

Here’s a list of Blog Posts we’ve written which might be of assistance too:
