I have an MFA in Acting from the University of Arkansas, I've studied at the American Shakespeare Center, and I've studied at The Second City.
I am also fluent in Spanish, including reading in Spanish.
I would love to help you get some great takes by finding the truth and the heart of your piece.
Debbie Baños (she/her/hers) holds an MFA in Acting from the University of Arkansas (Fayetteville), has worked with Chicago theater companies such as Babes with Blades, Halcyon, Victory Gardens, Teatro Vista, Still Point, and Erasing the Distance, and has recently had her network debut on Chicago Fire. When she is not acting, Debbie writes about family, love, and immigration as a first-generation American and proud daughter of immigrants. She has written two plays, a solo show “American Side Efectos” and a one-act play “Escape Velocity” developed at the Chicago Theatre Marathon. "Escape Velocity" was included in the 24-hour Women's Theatre Festival of 2018. “American Side Efectos” was developed through a grant with the National New Play Network, received an ALTA (Alliance of Latinx Theater Artists) Award nomination and was hailed as “a triumphant solo show full of anger, humor, and heart.” In 2021, she collaborated with Colombian director Esteban Arévalo Ibáñez for a sold out run of "American Side Efectos" in The Edge Off-Broadway in Chicago. Debbie is represented by 10 Talent. debbiebanos.com
