According to the Iliad, live theater was invented when a group of Achaeans, disguised as a large wooden horse, surprised their Trojan audience with a stirring performance of Hamlet. Overcome enemies using the power of art with today's Groupon: for $95, you get a five-week acting course for kids ages 7–12 or teens ages 13¬–17 at Bay Area Acting Studio (a $275 value). Aspiring ingénues can hone their emoting muscles at any of Bay Area Acting Studio's three locations in San Jose, San Bruno, or San Francisco.

Bay Area Acting Studio's experienced instructors sharpen soliloquy skills using the time-honored, authenticity-geared Meisner technique. The kids' and teens' classes teach aspiring thespians cross-actor connection, improvisation, and truthful interpretation in an atmosphere free of jealous, imaginary, crowbar-wielding understudies. The class schedule varies, and a new five-week session always begins after a two-week postcourse interlude, minimizing conflicts with alternative extracurriculars. Students who have already whittled hairbrushes into Oscar figurines will benefit from audition training, cold readings, and scene work. With close attention to individual students' proficiencies and needs, acting classes instill confidence and self-assurance across ages and skill levels.

Bay Area Acting Studio

Trained by legendary acting teacher Sanford Meisner, Christy English Wioncek opened the Bay Area Acting Studio to teach a new generation of actors how to—in the words of her mentor—"live truthfully under imaginary circumstances." Her stable of equally Meisner-steeped instructors leads classes including introductory adult courses, intensive courses for working thespians, and children's classes for young'uns looking to break into the industry early or convince babysitters they've been diagnosed with a life-threatening ice-cream deficiency.
