Question by Jordan: What performing arts high schools would you recommend?
I am in high school and I want to end up pursuing a career in theater or film. I live in a really small town in a state where there aren’t really any opportunities to get my name out there. I have been in about 9 plays and had the lead or a good role in most of them. But, I want to try to move up since I’m sort of out growing the places I performed before. I want to try to go to a performing arts high school for the remaining years I have in high school, I just don’t know where to go. I have been talking about maybe a boarding school if there are none in my area. I live in a northern part of New England, so, there isn’t very much here. Any suggestions or advice would be appreciated!

There are high schools that have more involved Arts classes and programs, but I guess not in your town.
Here is a list of “boarding arts schools” you may have to audition just to be accepted.?

As far as getting your name out there, it doesn’t really work that way.
You need to find community theaters to perform in a places that aren’t a school. Then you would have more people to talk to and meet and some of them might have good leads or perhaps you would impress someone, but going to a performing arts high school only will give you an education, not get you an agent or whatever you’re dreaming about.
A good education will just give you a better resume, but you still will have to go out to theaters and repertory companies to get some real life stage work and get some public exposure.
It just is not as easy and magical as a lot of the kids on here seem to think. They are all dreamers.
Only hard work and experience will even get you to a door, and even then there are no guarantees.

So , break a leg!
