For $299, today's side deal gets you enrollment in the Actor’s Boot Camp from The Acting Corps (up to a $799 value). The camp takes place five nights a week for four weeks. Choose to begin your training on one of the following start dates:

Every boot-camp teacher is an accomplished actor who carries with them at all times their MFAs from places such as Rutgers, Irvine, and Yale, busting out tool-based, practical acting lessons that increase range, understanding of fundamentals, and likelihood of making it big. With small, intimate class sizes, students will receive personal attention while being both pushed and nurtured by teachers and fellow students. By the end, actors 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—3,000 actors and seven years later—almost the exact same thing, but now with a refined process, three theaters, and an effective, exacting curriculum: 1,200 of those 3,000 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
- If this is really, really what you want to do...if you are willing to WORK for it, then this is the place to go. – Mary R., Yelp
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.
