Publisher's Summary

Created by established Chicago actor and teacher Chris Agos, Acting in Chicago demystifies the question of how to earn a full-time living as an actor. Used in university acting programs and recommended by agents and acting coaches, it has become the actor's definitive guide to starting and growing a career in the Midwest's booming entertainment business. 

Learn about the seven ways Chicago actors make money actually acting, how much career actors can earn, agents, casting directors, essential investments to make (and which to skip), the actors' union, and much, much more. 

This edition adds new information on self-taped auditions, how Chicago actors can prepare for a move to Los Angeles, and how to get a child actor into the business.

I'm so grateful to have discovered this!!

I'm so grateful to have discovered Chris Agos's audiobook, 'Acting in Chicago' I highly recommend this to actors who are just starting out. I wish I could have heard this back when I first started getting into acting 5 years ago. Chris is very good at explaining things and he kept me very interested though out all the characters!! Even after a long day at my second job!! no excuses!! Thanks again Chris, you have motivated a Arizona Actor to go kick some butt in VO and Acting.
