Broadway on Tour Chidren's Theatre 
"BOT (say bee-oh-tee, not 'bot'), was founded by Daniel Halkyard in October, 1988 in Placentia, California, to provide a place for kids who wanted to perform on stage to learn in a professional manner. Broadway on Tour's first performance was 'A Christmas on Broadway' in December of 1988 after three months of rehearsal. With many elementary and intermediate schools strapped for cash, there often was no other place for kids to learn and display their talent in the community. The theater's motto: 'Children Bringing Theatre to Children' - also points out the other, equally important mission of BOT. We provide affordable live theater performances to young audiences as their introduction to a world of entertainment outside of TV, movies, and other 'non-organic' storytelling. To provide a place for families to watch live performances, we offer shows on weekends year 'round in a facility that caters to the young audience. We have a long term agreement with the historic Ebell Theater located in a family-friendly location, and produce one and two hour musical matinee performances featuring characters and stories recognizable by kids from ages three to ten. Our shows are performed by kids typically aged from eight to eighteen, with auditions open to the public. BOT is an all volunteer organization, like 'Little League', only for young actors. The only way we can put on our shows is with help from the parents of the kids in the cast."  Santa Ana, Yorba Linda

Lights, Camera, Acting! 
"LCA brings talented working actors from Los Angeles to Orange County to teach on-camera acting for ages 4 to adult. Founder, J. Robin Miller (Lydia on General Hospital), brings a rich tapestry of past and current acting expertise to the curriculum. The teaching staff brings all facets of acting expertise: film, television, theater, commercials, and voice-over work. All class work is video taped so students can observe their work, target improvement, get privately coached, then immediately tape the scene again to showcase their success to themselves and their parents the last 15 minutes of each class. It’s amazing how quickly our students excel. LCA’s classes teach a comprehensive approach to auditioning but also foster creativity, reading comprehension skills, and self-confidence."  Costa Mesa
