This exciting new Summer program will give young actors a fun and informative experience where students will get to learn fundamental acting skills through theater games, improv, and vocal & physical exercises.  But best of all, students will get to create an original play to be performed on the final day of class, showcasing all their new acting skills for family and friends!

As an added bonus, CAS will invite a casting professional to attend the show, and have a Q & A session with the students and parents.  If your child is passionate about the performing arts and dreams of being a professional actor, this is a fantastic opportunity!

Patti Balsis - Instructor

Waking up with passion and purpose - Patti Balsis has been working with kiddos on set for over 20 years. Pouring everything she has learned into their heads and hearts. She is well known for doing industrials, commercials and print work - a working spokesperson for Fortune 500 companies. While teaching EAR Prompter and On Camara classes in Chicago, she has attracted many talent from the midwest to take her lessons and also keep in touch with her. She stays in touch with her students and is always there to encourage them and be their cheerleader.

Very hands on and can quickly show her students how to differentiate themselves from the other talent and make them stand out. Patti brings out their strengths and makes them feel connected to their craft. Each child is special and unique and they all will learn some basics and that is only the beginning - so much to stretch with each personality and build that into the class. At Chicago Actors Studio we build relationships and help these actors see their potential and build them up for success with our many different classes that are offered.
