Meg (megscl) | 1522 comments Would a music hall performer work? I haven't read it yet so not sure how much is acting and how much is just singing. But it involves drag, so presumably that's acting?
Tipping the Velvet

From reviews it looks like there is a theatre component, so it looks like it might work.

TraceyL | 810 comments Would an aspiring actress work? In American Vampire, Vol. 1 there are two stories that intertwine. The main character in one of those stories is an aspiring actress who does work as an extra on a movie.

A character in one story would not work.

Julia (julia103) | 1640 comments I'm wondering about the definition of "professional". In looking through some boxes of old books in my closet I found We Open on Venus and A Slight Detour which are science fiction about a troupe of actors performing on different planets. Would these qualify?

(We're half-way through the third month of the summer challenge and I have library books for some of the other tasks that I need to read first so I don't know whether I would get to this one, but wanted to check now instead of waiting to ask in the last few days.)
