Where Dreams Are Made Possible

Our program is rooted in “The Method,” the cornerstone of professional training, created by Constantin Stanislavsky, learned by countless famous award winning actors/actresses of film and television and taught by the Lee Strasberg institute in New York and West Hollywood, Uta Hagen, HB Studios, New York, and Stella Adler to name a few.

                       Our workshops also incorporate the teaching of Sanford Meisner and the 12 Guideposts of Michael Shurtleff, which are both basically techniques devised from the teachings of Stanislavsky himself, but approaching them from other innovative perspectives.

Since each individual is unique, coaches at The Chicago Actors Studio give each participant special individualized attention, utilizing these various tools and combinations to whatever extent necessary to tap into and bring about each actor's unique creative inner-self. This specialized attention, not seen at any other training center, is extended even far after an actor may finish their training, venturing out into the wonderful worlds of Stage, Screen, Television and industrial markets. An actor may always find support needed at CAS, while actively pursuing their passions. We are dedicated to each and every person that passes through our doors and that is the bottom line.
