Acting Class Prerequisites

Many of our classes have a prerequisite, and therefore require an approval process. We take the placement process seriously and want to make sure we are placing students with prior training and experience into classes that will best challenge them.

      • To apply for a class with a pre-requisite, click “Apply” and submit your headshot and resume to us. Once we receive your submission, we will review your materials and be in touch very soon!
      • After you’ve been approved for a specific class, you can complete your registration and payment online.

For classes with no pre-requisite, please enter your photo and info about yourself, along with your payment information and register online.


Payments can be paid online via your cart…

Go to Your Cart

Please note that to pay for a class, you may choose to pay in full at the time of registration, or may put down a non-refundable deposit of $100. In which case, the remaining tuition will be automatically charged to your credit card on the first day of class unless you arrange otherwise with us immediately after registering.

Remember, once your credit card is on file, it will be automatically charged for any outstanding tuition on the first day of class. Before registering for class, please familiarize yourselves with our Policies. They are in place to ensure we offer consistently small, high-quality classes!


Actor's Headshots and Resumes

Please make sure, regardless of the class you’ve registered for, that you have uploaded a photo and resume (or a statement about yourself if you don’t have a resume.) This helps our teachers and staff get to know you, as well as aides in the casting of scene work in class. If you have not already done so, you may add your resume and headshot at any time by visiting you account page.

Go to My Account Page

We are always here to help if you run into any questions in the application and payment process, or if you just have a question about what might be the best fit for you. Please feel free to call us at 312-527-4566.
