Chicago auditions: Theater, film, shorts

See also

The summer is not over and it is not too late to book a gig. Chicago is limitless for finding auditions for actors and actresses. The opportunities are for stage, film and film shorts. Some are by appointment, some are outside of the union. If you want to act nothing will keep you from auditioning to be the shadow on the wall or the "dirt on the floor" as Whoopi Goldberg told Oprah Winfrey for the Master Class on the Oprah Winfrey Network. Whoopi was speaking about a letter written to Alice Walker, the author of the Color Purple. Offering to audition to be the dirt on the floor paid off cause Whoopi got the leading roll.

Alice Walker vouched for Whoopi cause she had seen Whoopi perform. So for actors, in order for anyone to know your acting ability, you must act, be in a performance of some kind. So with that being said the following are a few auditions that may interest you.
