The Green Room On Camera Training Program
Advanced TV/Film Scene Study is outside of our core program and DOES allow students new to the Green Room based on approval. See FAQ's and class description for further information.
Guest teachers listed for the classes are based on their availability and not guaranteed. All of our classes with guest casting directors including this class are a learning experience. It is not an audition or employment opportunity. When the workshop/class is over, the casting director/casting associate/session director (whichever is applicable) teaching this workshop will not be taking home nor be given access to your headshot, resume or any other of your promotional materials.
Please note the STUDIO at which each class meets. We now have two spaces. The ChicagoAve studio is at 1915 W. Chicago Ave 60622 and Ravenswood is at 3701 N. Ravenswood Ave. #201 60613
- A student may makeup up to TWO missed classes depending upon availability of a suitable make-up date. Makeups must be completed within a year of the initial class.
In the past few session we have been fortunate to have had Jenn Noyes - Casting Associate at Karge Ross Casting, AJ Links - Casting Associate at PR Casting, Sarah Charipar - Session Director at PR Casting, Brian King - series regular on Showtimes The Chi, and Sam Porretta - former Session Director at O'Connor Casting join us for various evenings. It's our hope that we will be able to include some evenings with a mix of as many of these artists as possible in this session as well- though any given artist is dependent upon their ever changing availability especially as we move into production season and casting schedules get busy.
Any specific guest teachers listed or anticipated for the classes are based on their availability and not guaranteed due to potential last minute changes in casting schedules.

Ivcich CORE - 90 Minute Exploratory
Attend this free 90-minute class and work hands on with Steven Ivcich to see if the CORE Program is right for you.
What you experience in this CORE Exploratory is unlike anything you’ve encountered in other approaches to acting. It optimizes your current skills. At the same time you discover a way of working that is unique to you. Unless you’ve worked with Steven Ivcich before, this will be decidedly new territory for you as an actor. No one ever leaves a CORE class saying, “I’ve seen that before”. As Steven notes, “My way of working presents an entirely new creative space.”
What previous CORE students say about the exploratory...
"If you are truly serious about acting, Steve will help you to unlock doors you didn't even know existed."
"In my opinion, he is a master teacher. His process takes everything you learned in the past and expands it so that you even surprise yourself. He empowers you so that you find your own way."
"If you are at all serious about your craft, you have to add his process to your arsenal."
This class is for actors age 18 and up.
Leap with Passion into 2020!
Do you wish you had time each year during the busy holiday season to take stock of your life and prepare for the year ahead?
If yes, then the Leap with Passion Workshop is for you.
The annual Leap with Passion is a life-changing 5-hour workshop. Offered just before the end of the year, it is an opportunity for participants to show up for themselves—without distractions—in order to mindfully complete 2019 and then create an inspiring plan for 2020…a plan that will stick. This workshop is perfect for actors and non-actors alike.
Leap with Passion was created by native Chicagoan & NYC transplant, Rhonda Musak.
Here's what some past participants are saying about the workshop:

As a child’s acting coach, I often hear the same scenario from the parents of my young students. Mom or Dad agrees to have their child audition for a professional role—they then spend time helping the child prepare, putting together the child’s resume and picture, coordinating their outfit, running lines, taking time out of the family schedule to get their child to the audition, and so on. Once there, the child enters the audition room without mom or dad. When they return, the parents eagerly ask how it went, and the child responds with a vague “fine”. The parents are left to ponder the mysterious inner workings of the audition room. While we can’t expect children to give a detailed analysis of each experience, we can keep these five things in mind to help young actors in their auditions.Read more

Over my long career I’ve gotten to know every aspect of auditioning. As a writer/director I know the frustrations of trying to find the right actor for the role. When I was a casting director I struggled to get the most from actors in auditions. As an actor I’d thoroughly prepare for every audition only to have something unexpected render my preparation useless.
