Acting can be fun. Don’t let it get around.
Welcome to Green Shirt Studio. We are certified instructors of the Sanford Meisner Approach to Acting as trained by master teacher Larry Silverberg. We are smart, funny, passionate and just a little bit punk. Our belief is that your acting should be as real as the shirt on your back.
What we do
We train actors to live as authentically on stage (or in front of a camera) as they do they in their lives. Probably more so. We ask you to ask more of yourself. We love humanity and invite you to explore it with us.
SPRING 2014 classes are now posted! Check them out here!

Taught by director and former Chicago Shakespeare Theater Casting Associate Keira Fromm, this one-day workshop will familiarize students with the techniques essential to thriving with audition sides. This class will cover the best methods to use to prepare audition sides as well as address how to function in the room on the day of the audition. The class will also offer ample time for Q&A about the audition and callback process.

A selection of sides (as well as the play) will be made available to all students from the instructor ahead of time. By the end of the workshop, all students will have had the opportunity to present an audition side along with instructor feedback and class discussion.
