“ATC is the place I go when I'm looking for talent. Their track record is unbeatable." –ADAM BELCUORE, CASTING DIRECTOR, THE GOODMAN THEATRE
" As always when I am seeking a special young performer, I contacted The Actors Training Center. And, as always, they did not disappoint. Janet Louer's suggestion that we see Emily Chang was spot-on, and we could not be more thrilled she will be playing Jojo in Chicago Shakespear's summer production of SEUSSICAL." -- BOB MASON, CASTING DIRECTOR (CHICAGO SHAKESPEARE THEATRE)
" ATC corners the market on teaching and training young people."-- ERICA DANIELS, ASSOCIATE ARTISTIC DIRECTOR (STEPPENWOLF)
"ATC offers the best actor training for teens and young adults in the Midwest. Carole sets the bar high, which will always make ATC the first stop when looking for young talent in Chicago."-- GEOFFREY SOFFER, NEW YORK CASTING DIRECTOR (UGLY BETTY)
"ATC is better than most of what we have out here in Los Angeles."-- DEBORAH DION, L.A. CASTING DIRECTOR
