Acting & Theatre is an Usborne paperback book that is a great resource for a young person interested in acting. This 64-page book doesn't necessarily tell you how to act, but rather is full of information that a budding actor or actress might be interesting in knowing.

The beginning of the book introduces lots of techniques the reader can try. Ideas include warm-up activities, learning to improvise, theatre games, important notes about movement and voice, mime, and how to learn your lines.

The book then gives information, with wonderful full-color photographs and drawings, on topics such as set design, props, costumes, make-up, lighting, sound, and so on.

The end of the book gives a brief history of acting, with chapters on Stanislavsky, Brecht and the epic theatre, the history of European theatre, Oriental theatre and 20th Century influences. Also included are a Who's Who of playwrights and a glossary of important acting terms and concepts.
