Legendary entertainers Kenan and Kel made theatrical history when they broke down the fourth wall, and then, to the consternation of the set designer, broke down the second and third walls as well. Experience the magic of the stage with today's Groupon: for $35, you get enrollment in a Mini Actors' Boot Camp (a $79 value) at The Acting Corps. All lessons take place on either Wednesday or Saturday (October 2, 6, 9, 13, 16, 20, 23, 27, 30, and November 3, 6, 10, 13).
The Mini Actors' Boot Camp is a rigorous three-hour workshop that introduces actors to techniques further developed in the Actors' Boot Camp. Every boot-camp teacher is an accomplished actor who carries at all times their MFAs from places such as Rutgers, Irvine, and Yale. The tool-based, practical acting lessons increase range, understanding of fundamentals, and likelihood of earning a role on the upcoming sequel to Saving Private Ryan. With small, intimate class sizes, students will receive personal attention while being both pushed and nurtured by teachers and fellow students. Actors can expect immediate results with this intensive course, which includes on-camera training, and will emerge with a solid and functional foundation upon which to build self-confidence, a further acting education, and possibly a career.
What started as a bunch of struggling actors raving, rambling, and soliloquizing together in the park is now—5,000 actors and seven years later—almost the exact same thing, but with a refined process, three theaters, and an effective, exacting curriculum: 1,000 of those 5,000 have since landed professional television and film employment. The program has even been endorsed by actors such as Rainn Wilson (Dwight Schrute of The Office) and Oscar-winning actor/director/producer Sydney Pollack.

- I fell in love with the Acting Corps because of the atmosphere and the style of teaching. – AnaisAimee, Citysearch
- I have learned a great deal about myself and the kind of actor I want to be. The teachers do not coddle your bad habits, but instead, give you the tools to break free of them. – MerFair, Citysearch
The Acting Corps
The Acting Corps, a school endorsed by Oscar winner Sydney Pollack as well as Rainn Wilson of The Office, takes a modern approach to acting instruction. In classes with an average of 16 students, creativity flows unimpeded and students overhear the whispered names of Hollywood’s best agents quite clearly. Actors with MFA degrees lead programs that help acting students find an authentic style, and also pilot advanced classes with mock auditions that challenge experienced actors. Four- or six-week acting boot camps incorporate aspects of the Meisner technique and the Michael Chekhov technique. In classes engineered for international acting students, teachers elucidate methods for developing a convincing American accent or faking a convincing cheeseburger craving.
