Word-of-Mouth is our best advertisement. Check out what our students have to say about ASC! 

"Doug, (Doug McDade, Camera Instructor, Summer Audition Clinic) thank you so much for teaching me about the amazing tactics of working on scenes. I have done a lot of theater and never knew what it was like to work on camera. I have had a wonderful time with all scenes, and that one Kidzbop commercial which made me laugh the hardest I've ever laughed. Thank you."

— Maeve Doody

"I've learned a whole lot this week. Rachael, (Rachael Patterson, Studio Director) you taught me the business and how to be poised and presentable, which I now know is very important. Adrianne, (Adrianne Cury, Monologue Instructor, Summer Audition Clinic) you taught me how to incorporate more than what I thought I had to do. My piece would not be what it is without your input. Thank you for helping me understand the importance of a scene partner. Doug, (Doug McDade, Camera Instructor, Summer Audition Clinic) you have taught me how to be camera smart. Thank you for showing me how to act on camera, which I now know is different than acting on stage. Christina, (Christina Gorman, Cold Reading Instructor, Summer Audition Clinic) Thank you for teaching me how to read something for the same time with as much meaning as if I had the material for months. Acting Studio has given me much more than what I knew I could do. An actor can't be what they are without outstanding teachers behind them."

— Emily Marcheschi

"I had so much fun this week. I can definitely leave saying I improved as an actor. I use to just memorize monologues, but now I am incorporating humor, discoveries, and actions. I learned more on-camera technique from Doug (Doug McDade, Camera Instructor, Summer Audition Clinic). I would love to come back next year, and I plan on taking more classes at the Acting Studio of Chicago. In one week I had a huge improvement, imagine what more training would do." 

— Demi Hagan

"This week has been one of the best weeks of my life. I have learned so much from all of the teachers at the Acting Studio, and I am so thankful for this experience. I would love to do the two-week summer intensive next year. I'm so excited to use what I have learned here in my school's drama department and for my future auditions." (Summer Audition Clinic)


— Christian Zamudio

"I would highly recommend this class to everyone! Henry (Henry Wishcamper, Instructor- Master Scene Study with Henry Wishcamper) breaks down scenes and the audition process in a fun, down to earth, and direct fashion. Everyone in my class had a wonderful time and Henry picks great, new (some not even yet produced) material. The 6 weeks flew by!"

— Henry Wishcamper Scene Study Student

"Shade Murray (Master Scene Study with Shade Murray) really respects every actor's individual needs while making this scene study class incredibly fun and challenging in the best way. I really got pushed past my comfort zone. Shade is the best!"

— Master Scene Study with Shade Murray Student

Gretchen Sontroem (Level 3 Instructor) was an amazing teacher. She pulled me out of my comfort zone and pushed me to where I thought I could never go.

— Treveen Stewart

"This class (Master Scene Study) is a unique opportunity to work, observe, learn, explore, take risks, and network, all at once!"

— Laurie Carter Rose

"Kurt Naebig (Advanced Scene StudyHas really enlightening examples, great emphasis on the importance of pre-work and being in the moment. Basically, if a student is open, this class is very rich for fast growth."

— Arya Daire

"PURE GENIUS! There aren't any words in the English language or any other language to express or convey to you how grateful and blessed! to have Adrianne Cury (Level 3 Scene Studyas an instructor!"

— Elvis Cirkic
