Hey! I just wanted to send a quick thanks to Sean and David. I took level 1 this past Fall, and I just got my first call back. The class was so incredibly helpful to me, and I am hoping to save up to take the next level soon. I just wanted to send a big sincere thank you because I know that just getting to this point means I have improved so much. Have a great day!– Devin
Thank you for a wonderful class over the last 8 weeks. I learned so much, and feel so much more grounded in this area of auditioning. Again, I really got exactly what I was hoping to out of the class: practical and applicable tools, a sense of knowing how CD's are thinking when they cast, and an empowering release of weird fears and self-criticism/editorialism. So for all that, thanks a bunch.– Elizabeth W.
Could you please pass this along to David and Sean. I just wanted to let you guys know that I loved your class. It was by far the most beneficial acting class I've ever taken. I can't wait to finish the program.– Leigh
Just wanted to mention I booked my first episodic (and my first SAG gig) with that new series shooting here, Betrayal! It's got the potential to be recurring (fingers crossed). Couldn't have done it without your excellent training, y'all! It's a baby step, but I'm steppin'...Thanks!– Jin
I just wanted to thank you two for a really great class and everything that you taught in this past 8 weeks. I feel like I gleaned SO much information in each one, really, and I appreciated being in a class with instructors who know their stuff, didn't waste our time and effort, and kept it real.– Emily
I can't thank enough my daughter's teachers for all the fun she had in class and the knowledge she acquired at the Green Room studio. Sasha booked her first (SAG) commercial two weeks after the class ended. She booked another SAG commercial shortly thereafter and is about to become a union member a month after turning 6! We will definitely take more Green Room classes down the road as they were invaluable for both me and my daughter!– Sasha's Mom
Taking GRPP Levels 1-3 was hands down the best money I've spent in the three years I've been acting. I used to make the same mistakes over and over at auditions. Now, I'm getting frequent callbacks - and I'm even starting to get cast in roles that are against type!– Annelyse Ahmad

Hey there! How often do you come out of auditions saying, “They didn’t laugh. They must not have liked me.” “I’m probably not going to get it.” “That director hates me.” “I never get these auditions.” “That was the worst audition of my life.” Read more
One of the most common gripes I hear from actors – what they perceive to be the biggest stumbling block to their career success – is that they don’t have a “good enough” agent. They need a better one, cause their agent isn’t getting them called in. They aren’t getting submitted. In all honesty- if they are living here in Chicago – they usually couldn’t be further from the truth. Read more
When I first moved to Chicago, a friend took me into his agency (one of the biggest in town) and they signed me. When that agency closed, he took me into his new agency (another big one) and they signed me. They must have really trusted this particular friend of mine because I never even had to audition. Lucky, right?
Not so much.
Because I never had to audition, I didn’t realize the work I needed to do. I was young, inexperienced and new to the city. I had no idea what to do. So I did what anyone would do: nothing. I was one of those actors who complained all the time that my agent didn’t know me and wasn’t sending me out. So while I had a really good agent, I spent a lot of time looking for another agent which, as any actor will tell you, is time consuming and frustrating. And since I spent most of time being annoyed at my agency for not getting me great auditions, I never bothered to build a relationship with them.
