About this Event

“The best auditions are you being yourself. Knowing who YOU are. Come in the room and be genuine. Most directors don’t know what they’re looking for until they SEE it.”

Dive into the world of a professional actor by drilling down on the tools needed to make an impression in the casting office. Learn about the different types of commercials, and then dive into each genre on television and film. Script analysis, emotional memory, and two-person shots will be taught by a professional in the industry who uses these skills as a full-time actor in Chicago.

This two-part class will be held on Saturday, August 22nd from 3:45 p.m. – 6:15 p.m. AND Sunday, August 23rd from 10 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Register below to attend BOTH parts for $305.

The Instructor

Sara Sevigny is a Chicago bred actor, singer, improviser, and playwright who is best known for her work as board member Edna Bunnin on Empire (Fox). Sara also starred as Grace in the film Rogers Park (Critic’s Pick New York Times, 100% Rotten Tomatoes) as well as the hit web series Other People’s Children. Other credits include The Gabriels (Pilot-Series Regular), PopTv’s Hot Date, Comedy Central’s South Side and the film, Cold War.

A proud member of SAG-AFTRA and Actor’s Equity Association, Sara has worked onstage with Chicago Shakespeare Theater, Lyric Opera Chicago, Paramount, Broadway Playhouse, Chicago Children’s Theatre, About Face, TimeLine, and The Hypocrites. She is also a proud Joseph Jefferson Award winner for her work as Sara Jane Moore in Porchlight Music Theatre’s production of Assassins.

When she’s not acting, you can find Sara at Actor’s Training Center, audition-coaching and teaching on-camera classes, or at the dog park with her pups and her hubs. She also likes unsweetened green tea lemonade, in case you wanted to get her one. It tastes like sunshine.
