Acting classes teach students how to cry on command—a skill that's especially useful when feigning investment in a relationship or pretending to whittle an onion. Live out your own sob-story with today's Groupon: for $30, you get a two-hour introductory Course I–Essentials class at The Acting School for Film and Television (a $150 value).

Drawing on big- and small-screen success, such as appearances in All My Children and more than 25 national commercials, acting guru Mark Stolzenberg transforms amateurs into screen-savvy performers at The Acting School for Film and Television. During two-hour Essentials classes, held Wednesday and Thursday at 7:30 p.m., silver-screen beginners tackle skills such as using eye-line levels, honing audition technique, controlling vocal projection, and demanding bigger trailers.

The acting chops honed in the class equip thespians for time spent on the stage and the big screen with a slew of monologues, improvisations, and cold readings. Finally, students learn to coat the lens in raw authenticity with lessons in emotionality and physicality. Mark asks that students arrive 30 minutes ahead of schedule for a complimentary acting class that covers fundamentals and skills for fighting off crazed fans.

New York Acting School for Film and Television

Drawing on big- and small-screen success, such as appearances in Tom Selleck's Her Alibi and on Late Show with David Letterman, as well as more than 25 national commercials, acting guru Mark Stolzenberg transforms amateurs into screen-savvy performers at the New York Acting School for Film and Television. Thespians hone their acting chops through monologues, improvisations, and cold readings in Mark's classes, preparing for time spent on television or the big screen. Essentials classes introduce neophyte film actors to the intricacies of playing to the camera, whereas advanced pupils refine their techniques by co-starring in a two-person short film directed by Stolzenberg, learning to handle more difficult scene work and larger crowds of crazed fans. For more targeted practice, Mark hosts one-on-one, on-camera coaching sessions to prep audition material or monologues for upcoming performances.
