  • Woodminster Amphitheater
    The Woodminister Amphitheatre, located in Oakland’s Joaquin Miller Park, is a great place to catch a production of classic plays like Mary Poppins or The Producers. Each summer this 2,000-seat venue puts on three performances, featuring both amateur and professional actors. The scenery is enough of an attraction that there doesn’t even need to be a performance to make the Woodminister Amphitheatre worth visiting. Bring a packed lunch and a loved one and enjoy a cozy picnic in one of the Bay Area’s most beautiful parks. It’s great for stargazing too, just be sure to dress warmly and bring a blanket, as the nights can get a little chilly.

  • Kinetic Arts Center
    At Kinetic Arts Center, students run away to the circus because it's a more fun way to stay fit than running around a track. There they learn circus arts such as modern dance steps, adventurous trapeze routines, and physics-bending parkour moves. And not only do classes keep students, who range from toddlers to adults, in good shape, but they also prepare them for performing in front of a crowd. Pupils can also study juggling and clowning. They're taught by a roster of teachers whose long résumés include backgrounds in dance, theater, and the circus arts.
