The Casting Couch Players

He has been in many plays in Chicago, was a featured voice in the dramatic audio version of the popular “Left Behind” series and regularly recreates old radio shows on stage.

Pam Turlow works extensively in all facets of voice-over work. Her specialty is character voice work, but she’s done tons of commercials (both national and local), educational projects (including the Sunsprouts early reader books) and books on tape (has voiced numerous characters for the “Left Behind” audio series). She has a plethora of stage credits including such favorite roles as The Baker’s Wife in “Into the Woods” and Mrs. Lovett in “Sweeney Todd” (After Dark Award Recipient). When she’s not romancing the microphone, she’s happily romancing her wonderful husband, Ben Dooley (fellow actor and also an amazing life coach who teaches life coaching for actors at Act One Studios), or cuddling with their significantly adorable beagle, Mabel. By the way — we ARE the music makers and we ARE the Dreamers of Dreams…
