Hi! I'm new. Is anyone else on here from the good old Prairie State? I'm from the south Chicago suburbs, not far from Northwest Indiana, and as anyone else can tell you, the Chicagoland area is almost a completely different world than the rest of Illinois. Therefore, I won't even bother with the Illinois list, heh.
PS: I know I'm technically not a Chicagoan, but most of these are still true for me...so any real Chicagoans on here, please don't hurt me. :)( You Know You're From Chicago When...Collapse ) ( You Know You're From The Region (Northwest Indiana) When...Collapse )

A Community for Ohio-Area theater and film artists
This community is to be used as a resource for theater & film artists in the Ohio area.
We welcome theater & film artists of all kinds: actors, writers, directors, designers, etc.
We also welcome artists from other mediums (visual artists, dancers, etc.) and people with services to offer Ohio-area theater artists (headshots, classes, etc.).
This site should be used to express need for help with projects you are working on (you need a stage manager, you're holding audtions, etc). It can also be used to post information about auditions/calls for submissions/opportunities in the Ohio area, or to inform others about upcoming theater/film/art events.
Many people would say it's silly or stupid to try and create theater and film in a place like Ohio. But maybe you're too young to leave this place, or maybe you're too old to leave this place. Maybe you're going to school here. Maybe you have a regular, full-time job but still want to pursue theater as a part-time passion. Maybe you just graduated from theater school and you're sticking around your home area for a few years to save money/build your resume before moving to a big city. Or maybe you've just decided that you don't want to be one of the 2 billion masses washing up on NY or LA's shores saying "Look at me, I'm an actor/writer/director!" and you've decided that the place doesn't matter and you're going to create awesome theater and film right where you are, dammit.....
Either way. Join ohiotheater . Get word out about your stuff. Get word from others. Let's help each other out!
