Top L.A. Casting Director, Deborah Maxwell Dion returns for her once-a-year sell-out workshop. Deborah has an unprecedented reputation for drawing out the best in actors young and old during the casting process.

Not having an agent is no longer an excuse. With self-tapes becoming standard and casting notices being just a Google search away, there is no reason for an actor not to be auditioning.
The ATC staff will teach you how to navigate audition sites & tape and edit a studio-quality audition from home. Your next audition is closer than you think. A smart phone and laptop are required for this workshop.
This 4-week workshop will cover the basics of the world of voiceover. Jeff Lupetin, a 27-year voiceover veteran will show you how to create a marketable delivery using tone, pitch and tempo with actual commercial copy.

The precursor to our wildly popular teen Professional Summer Intensive, this boot camp prepares our young actors for the next step. through monologue, improv, on-camera, scene study, and more - actors will learn the imperative and challenging art of working honestly and fearlessly in all mediums of acting.
The Professional Summer Intensive was designed in 2004 by ATC Founder/Director, Carole Dibo, with a focus on helping high school students get inside the business with a curriculum that pushes them to an industry level of professionalism.
Monologue, scene study, accents & dialects, on camera, and more are all covered. Students have the opportunity to meet and ask questions to Casting Directors, Actors, & Agents.
The students conclude the 2 weeks with an audition-ready monologue, headshots, and a showcase for family, friends, and invited Chicago professionals.
