This download is a custom career. This means that you will need the NRaas Careers mod installed in order to use the download in your game.
Not all my acting sims want to be rich, famous and on the big screen. Some prefer stage acting, even behind the scenes work.

With that in mind, I've created a Performing Arts career. This is designed for sims who prefer acting on stage in front of an audience. This does not override the Film Career, or any other career.

For this career to show up, you will need the Nraas Careers Mod .
This career was made with Patch 1.69 and is in English and supports translations in German, Dutch, Russian, French, Brazilian Portuguese and Chinese. If you're interested in translating this career, there are instructions at the bottom of the page.

The career is based at the Theatre and has ten levels.
There are no uniforms for this career. You can edit career outfits with Patch 1.31 and above, so I highly suggest using this feature to give your Sims a uniform of your own choosing.
There are 6 Opportunities available.
Your Sim may receive a bonus on Snowflake Day if Seasons is installed.
There is no boss for level 10 of the career.
There are three custom tones; Practice Lines, which builds the Charisma skill (for levels 7 and 8); Adjust Cables, which builds the Handiness skill (for levels 1-4); and Rehearse Choreographed Fights, which builds the Athletic skill (for Level 5 only).
From level 6 onwards, your sims can hold Autograph Sessions at the theatre.
You will need Late Night and Showtime for this career to work as intended.

Join Text ~ Acting can be such a glamourous career but not everyone wants to be performing to a camera. Some actors want to display their talents on stage, to an audience in a theatre. Perhaps this is the real path to glory?

The Levels

1. Stagehand ~ You'll need to ensure all the props are in place for each scene change quickly and quietly. It's vital the audience do not see you. Be sure to show up for all full rehearsals to perfect the art of a quick scenery change. This may seem a lot to ask, but it's worth it when you watch the finished article.
4.00pm ~ 11.00pm
Downtown Hours: 6.00pm ~ 1.00am
Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday

2. Props Procurer ~ A new production is being rehearsed at the theatre and the directors are demanding brand new, never-before-seen props and guess who got the job of finding and ordering them? Yes, it's entirely up to you to find the best props available, haggle prices and deliver them to the theatre in time for the rehearsals. Doesn't that sound like fun?
4.00pm ~ 11.00pm
Downtown Hours: 6.00pm ~ 1.00am
Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday

3. Chief Electrician ~ No play would ever grace the stage without the electricians. Well they would, but nobody in the audience would be able to see them. Getting the lights just right for each scene is important, but nothing is more vital than ensuring the spotlights are on the correct actor! This is what you call power!
5.00pm ~ 12.00am
Downtown Hours: 7.00pm ~ 2.00am
Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday

4. Sound Technician ~ The directors will not tolerate their leading stars being seen but not heard! So it's up to you to be absolutely certain the actors can be heard from all the way down in the stalls right up to the circle and gallery. These actors have worked hard to remember their lines, so make sure you work twice as hard to allow the audience to hear them!
5.00pm ~ 12.00am
Downtown Hours: 7.00pm ~ 2.00am
Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday

5. Fight Choreographer ~ Unlike those so-called actors to a camera, fights in theatre productions do not have stunt doubles. Instead, they have carefully choreographed fight scenes which take days to design and weeks to rehearse for one perfect scene. Work late, show up early and be sure to get every last step perfected ~ or it'll be back to the props for you.
12.00pm ~ 5.00pm
Downtown Hours: 2.00pm ~ 7.00pm
Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday

6. Actor/Actress ~ There's nothing quite like waiting for the curtain to go up, striding out onto the stage, standing in the spotlight and giving it your heart and soul in front of live cameras and a few thousand audience members. You may never make it to Starlight Shores and the big screen, but it will hardly matter when you hear the applause during the curtain call.
4.00pm ~ 11.00pm
Downtown Hours: 6.00pm ~ 1.00am
Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday

7. Acting Assistant Stage Manager ~ While still acting in the plays the theatre is putting on, you've been selected to assist the Stage Manager. Listen to the concerns of your fellow actors during rehearsals and you'll climb that theatrical ladder in no time at all. As long as it's not in the middle of rehearsals, of course.
5.00pm ~ 11.00pm
Downtown Hours: 7.00pm ~ 1.00am
Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday

8. Assistant Stage Manager ~ Your years of acting are behind you but you're not ready to turn your back on the stage life for good. As an assistant to the Stage Manager, you're responsible for a lot of the final preparations the night before the opening night. Stay cool, calm and collected ~ you can do it!
5.00pm ~ 11.00pm
Downtown Hours: 7.00pm ~ 1.00am
Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday

9. Director ~ As the newest Director, you've got to keep your temper because you're going to be working long hours to pull this play together. It's vital you organise plenty of rehearsals and get your actors ready for the big Opening Night. Not only that, but the organisation of the props and scenery is partly your responsibility, so see to it that everything is just so.
12.00pm ~ 11.00pm
Downtown Hours: 2.00pm ~ 1.00am
Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday

10. Stage Manager ~ So you're far from your days as a Stagehand, but the seat of power is now truly yours. As Stage Manager, you're in charge of new productions and appointing directors and assistants. Every catastrophe will be your fault, but every triumph will have your name beside it. Watch those reviews begin to glitter ~ it's only the beginning!
5.00pm ~ 11.00pm
Downtown Hours: 7.00pm ~ 1.00am
Thursday, Friday, Saturday
