Even though you may not be rich enough or talented enough to take part in a feature film, there are many other performing arts that you can take part in. Among other things, you may want to see if your local community as any type of theater group. On the other hand, if you are more interested in singing, it may be to your advantage to join a choir. As may be expected, you can take part in a wide range of activities. This may include everything from building sets and stages to managing lighting during performances.
If you are more inclined towards writing, you may want to see if you can create a stage play or radio play.

In particular, if you have children attending the local school, you may want to write a play for the class. As may be expected, you will need to speak to your child's music teacher to find out all the details about planned performances.
In some cases, you may find that your interests lean more towards singing than acting or writing. Aside from taking part in a choir, you may want to see if there are any local bands that play on a regular basis. You may also want to contact your local chamber of commerce. Among other things, they may be able to tell you about restaurants and bars that feature open mic night as well as auditioning services. Or, you may simply want to record some sessions with online bands.

While you may not become famous, at least you can enjoy taking part in community events. Irregardless of whether you choose to help with a school play, or join a choir, you are sure to enjoy each performance. Depending on your skills and talents, you can take part in a wide range of activities. Without a question, if you ask what needs to be done, you will find something that will be of value to you and others in the community.
