acting tapesActing is tough: we certainly can't do it and some of our best actors are secretly terrible. Even Academy Award winners had to start somewhere. Sarantos Studios in Oak Park, Illinois is one such place.

Sarantos offers weekly classes for aspiring Chicagoland thespians of all levels of experience. After a few months of classes and once you're good and trained, Sarantos even puts together clips of your best work and throws them up on the web to increase your exposure. Though you may not be Brad Pitt just yet, we think you're doing a great job.

That's right, all 261 of you.
