Commercial auditions for kids and adults in Chicago.

Chicago area casting directors have a casting call out for kids, ages 8 to 12, parents and grandparents as well as talent to play store clerks in a TV commercial for Build-A-Bear.

Chicago area talent wishing to tryout for the roles can submit their information directly to the casting directors at Chicago’s 4 Star Casting.

    Looking for acting jobs, I am a rookie but I believe I have some talent as a walk on. I’m a huge fan of comedy, drama and horror.
