LOOKING FORWARD: Chicago Shows We're Excited About

Continuing our support of productions that embrace inclusion for artists and audiences, below are shows open or opening soon in Chicago that we feel are moving our community forward. As a staff, we have not necessarily seen all of these shows but are really glad they are happening. We are excited to list shows that offer some or all of the following: - Non-traditional casting - Accessible storytelling - Variety of perspectives on the design and production teams - Playwrights/Directors from underrepresented communities - Diversity in season programming Buy tickets to shows that celebrate inclusion. Then write to producers and tell them you want more of it. Decision makers are led by numbers

The Other Side of the Table: Considering Roles That Don't Belong to You

Hello, friends! Welcome to The Other Side of the Table, a place where industry professionals share tidbits, insights and experiences related to the wonderful world of casting, and our process in particular. Please remember that casting directors are as varied and individual as actors, so the sentiments contained herein are in no way intended to serve as a catch-all for some kind of universal casting intel; rather, this series will provide a glimpse into the minds, hearts and processes of casting people who want to share our wisdom. We hope you will enjoy and find it valuable in some way. Happy auditioning! This week, Stephanie discusses the role of the actor in a responsible casting process.
