I read the AskMeFi question, The Beginners Guide to Theatre Acting
which was great for auditioning ... the only problem now is I actually have a part!

The Sound of Music is being produced in my local town. Its a money maker for the organization as each part is required to pay in order to participate. My daughter was very excited, however they lacked some key characters and -against my normal psychological course- I offered to take up one of the roles.
4 showing in May 2012 is the target but I have NEVER done ANYTHING like this. I am a computer geek, plain and simple.
I have signed up for voice and guitar lessons. What I am looking for is actual instruction, tips, websites for 'how to act'. Do I exaggerate every action? Do I play it normal? How do I play it normal without making it MY normal (cynical/sarcastic). Please if you have any pointers or experience I would love to hear about them so as not to embarrass myself or my daughter.
