During these challenging times, we hope you are all staying safe and healthy!  To do our part to help impede the spread of the coronavirus, we have temporarily closed our studio and theater, putting all currently scheduled classes and events on hold until it's safe to resume normal workshop and other in-studio services.  But that doesn't mean we've simply abandoned our students or our commitment to the artistic community  providing the best possible training and support to aspiring actors.

We're excited to announce that we are now providing online workshops, private lessons and career counseling.  This way, you can continue to train and keep your skills sharp, all without having to leave the safety and comfort of your own home.  These online classes will be held through the now popular Zoom app, which you can download for free on your computer, phone or tablet.

If you are a currently registered student at the Chicago Actors Studio and any of your classes have been interrupted by this pandemic, don't worry, you will receive full class credit for all your remaining classes once we reopen our doors and these online workshops, for the time being, will be available FREE OF CHARGE to all currently registered CAS students, with private lessons being available at reduced rates.  However, we would appreciate you supporting the school by making a donation to our GoFundMe campaign to help with the on-going expenses to include aid to our teaching staff while we all strive to pull together as a family and community during these trying times. Please remember that a donation is NOT a requirement to join together with us online and if you choose to help, only donate what you can afford. Our main mission, as it has always been, is to provide a professional training environment, totally committed to you the student, in the dedicated pursuit of your dream.

These online workshops are available not only to current students, but to anyone with a passion for the performing arts and a desire to learn from a professional workshop environment taught by teachers that actually care about their students.  Again all of these online workshops (not including pri during this crisis, will be free for current CAS students. Non currently registered individuals who would like to register, and take full advantage of this on-line program are invited to call our office at 773-645-0222 to sign up.

It's very easy while you're stuck at home, to let your skills get rusty.  But you don't want to let that happen!  If you're serious about your acting career, there's all kinds of things you can do in these trying times to keep your skills sharp and hit the ground running once this pandemic is behind us, and we are here to help you!

We hope you're all as excited as we are to take part in these new online workshops, and we look forward to seeing you all again soon!

Stay healthy and vigilant out there!
