At the Chicago Actors Studio, director Edward Dennis Fogell educates and encourages aspiring thespians from entry-level beginners to advanced professional emoters, as he has been doing since 1992. During the course of 10 weeks, students learn to overcome stage fright and character-building anxiety while mastering such disciplines as emotional recall, movement and voice, and delivering stirring monologues to clerks at the grocery store. Whether they’re seeking stardom on stage or screen, this course grants acting students a grasp of the fundamentals of their craft to serve as a true compass in the murky waters of the drama world. Classes for intermediate and advanced students meet Wednesdays from 7 p.m. to 10:30 p.m., and beginners' classes meet Mondays at the same time.

Chicago Actors Studio

The Chicago Actors Studio encourages imagination and emotional exploration as it educates aspiring thespians in the dramatic arts. With affiliates in New York and Los Angeles, the studio welcomes students of all ages and experience to hone their skills through practiced scene study and individual monologues. The 10-week Acting as a Craft class showers a broad curriculum of skills upon actors-in-training, teaching them the nuances of acting onstage, on camera, or on top of a speeding train. Classes cover cold readings, as well as the initial steps toward becoming a master manipulator of voice and movement. Students ready to share their skills can benefit from expert wisdom in the Audition Power class, where instructors teach the tiny tricks necessary to quickly build relationships with scene partners, handle callbacks, and dress appropriately for the role.
