Acting classes prepare children for the musical job interviews, ad-lib chili cook-offs, and hostile street mimes they will inevitably encounter in the schoolyard. Today's Groupon lets kids find their stage voices: for $15, you get one three-hour children's workshop at Arden Theatre Company's Drama School (a $30 value). This Groupon can be used toward the following one-day workshops for children in grades 3–12: Acting, Improv, Once Upon a Time, Choose Your Own Adventure, Costume Design, Musical Theatre, and the audition workshop.
Arden Theatre Company offers hands-on classes for kids in grades 3–5, 6–8, and 9–12. Give a young imagination a thorough callisthenic workout in the Improv workshop, where kids create their own outrageous characters and skits. In the Choose Your Own Adventure workshop, budding playwrights dream up and act out three possible endings to a silly scenario. The Costume Design workshop allows for creativity behind the curtain as children sketch and render costumes for beloved storybook characters and popular 17th century philosophers. Future stars and starlets can perfect their monologues or Oscar acceptance speeches at the audition workshop. Classes at Arden Theatre are taught by friendly, experienced theater professionals dedicated to fostering creativity, self-esteem, and a love of the theater in kids of all ages.
