    Ok so I am in college, for business but I’d like to get involved in the drama and acting societies..

    The thing is, I’m really not interested in Pantomime, Caricature acting.. I don’t want to play the giant in a production of jack and the bean stalk...

    I want to act in more serious roles, Not even serious as in Romeo and Juliet.. just where the acting is more subtle, overall more intelligent less about a quick laugh or making it easy to see for the person in the back.

    I want to play different roles, have some fun with it but I’m not interested in a big song and dance (maybe I am) not in the way all our stage productions in school were done where you played a pirate who had to say ‘arrgh’ a lot and cough and sniff into a microphone so it’s obvious you’re a pirate..

    I want to act.. how should I start and is there actually a place for this?

    You might have some performing arts societies in your university but if they aren't focused on more serious productions then try googling for local amateur dramatics societies and talking to your local theatres (particularly any smaller theatres) to find out if there's anything more to your taste available.
