Oh, the dramas of youth: forced Brussels sprouts, non-exploding volcano projects, the "Ick!" factor of the opposite sex. Turn your children's flair for the dramatic into stage-ready skills at The Valletta Actors Studio with today's deal: For $89, kids ages 9 to 11 can take an eight-week acting course (a $200 value); or, for $125, the course is offered to teens ages 11 and up and theatrically minded adults (a $275 value). In his Solana Beach workshop, veteran actor Al Valletta uses instruction and improvisation exercises to harness budding actors' natural sense of the spotlight, leading pint- and full-sized students to snag roles in commercials, plays, television shows, and feature films. All the world's a stage -- especially star-studded SoCal -- so help your children (or yourself) leap into the limelight with a deal that steals the show.
