Mandy Patinkin's advice on pursuing an acting career? "Don't let anybody tell you 'No'!" (video) | ActorHub | Theater Education | Scoop.it

 "Chaffeur Will Rubio was driving stars around for the Sundance Festival and...asked [Mandy] Patinkin what advice he had for anyone starting out in the industry and here is what he had to say:Don’t let anybody tell you no. Just do it.My advice is if you love it and you wanna do it and it’s your dream don’t let anybody tell you no. Just do it. 
‘If you get knocked down get up again and if you can’t keep getting up when you keep get knocking down don’t be an actor, because that’s the name of the game. You have got to be willing to be disappointed constantly and not let it destroy you..."

Using Theatre and Drama to Increase Empathy in Students

Using Theatre and Drama to Increase Empathy in Students | Theater Education | Scoop.it

There are very few “provable” things in arts education, but one thing that has been “proven” over the years in educational research is that theatre education increases empathy in students.


Empathy, or the ability to understand another person’s feelings or circumstances, is a critical skill for an actor. It is how we are able to portray people who are very different from ourselves. We must imagine what it would be like to undergo the circumstances of the play in order to honesty represent those emotions and conditions on stage in a believable way.
 

Empathy in the classroom does not need to rise to the level of believable impersonation, but increased empathy is very helpful to students as they relate to each other and to their worlds. By integrating drama into the classroom, teachers can help students increase their empathy and meet non-arts curricular goals as well.
