The Theatre School’s BFA degree in acting prepares actors to work on both stage and screen. It was a perfect fit for Rachel, who is passionate in both stage and screen acting. The program develops actors who are imaginative, skillful, expressive and vibrantly alive. It is rooted in the Chicago theatre tradition, emphasizing physicality, truth in action, communication, collaboration and spontaneity. Each year, The Theatre School produces more than 30 productions to give students opportunities to synthesize what they are learning in the classroom.
