APRIL 2014 • VOL. 8 • ISSUE 4 Researching camps for my son provided a clear indication of how things have changed since my childhood summer vacations. Back in the day, our version of arts & crafts camp was making paper airplanes, decorating their wings with crayons, and launching them from the first story roof of my house. Water sports entailed busting out the slip 'n slide and running through the sprinklers. My recollection of sports camp? Striking up an impromptu game of over-the-line in the cul-de-sac or playing Nerf football in my backyard - no counselors, no certificates and no camp t-shirts! Today's camps offer a vast array of activities for all ages and interests. Busy parents can rest-assured knowing their kids have access to safe, stimulating and fun programs operated by professionals throughout Orange County. Our 2014 Camp Guide provides a handy resource on dozens of local options from traditional adventure camps to dance academies and more. Go to page 14 for a list of camps that'll keep the kids entertained all summer long. Register now to take advantage of early bird specials...before your kid's favorite sells out! This month's cover features Stephen Zygo of the Acting Academy for Kids. In operation since 2008 and now with locations in San Juan Capistrano and San Clemente, the Academy gives your child an opportunity to hone their theatrical chops. Offering voice, piano and guitar lessons, acting classes and innovative summer camps to both experienced performers and those new to the stage, the Acting Academy for Kids provides a creative, supportive and fun environment for your star to shine!

COVER STORY Maggie and Stephen Zygo

ACTING ACADEMY IT’S TIME TO WATCH YOUR

STAR SHINE!

by Shelley Hudson

Stephen and Maggie Zygo co-founded the Acting Academy for Kids in 2008 as both a community service and as a vehicle to pursue their lifelong passions in education and the performing arts. With public school budgets slashed in recent years, an unfortunate casualty has been the near elimination of cultural arts programs from the curriculum. The Zygos answered by developing a theater-based program to expose children and teens to acting, music, and dance and to teach skills that are inherent to performing—poise, confidence, collaboration, and discipline. The foundation of the Acting Academy for Kids is based on providing a quality performing arts experi-

ence with an emphasis on fun. A distinctive feature of the Academy is that its teachers are primarily credentialed educators and professional performing artists. These industry experts teach students to stretch their boundaries in a safe, supportive environment. The benefits are virtually limitless— whether a child is new to the stage or a budding superstar, he or she will learn valuable life lessons while nurturing friendships and forging lasting memories. “Our teachers are passionate and enthusiastic artists,” says Stephen, “They know how to keep kids engaged while having fun.” Another hallmark of the Academy is its partnership with local organizations such as the Camino Real Playhouse in San Juan Capistrano and the Cabrillo Playhouse in San Clemente. Both venues provide an authentic theater setting for the Academy's classes and performances. Main stage theatres, a set-building workshop, professional sound and lighting systems, a conservatory, dressing rooms, and the Academy’s expansive inventory of costumes gives students a first-hand appreciation for how the elements of a full-scale production come together. “It’s important for us to demonstrate that all aspects of theatre are integral for the whole to shine,” explains Maggie, “The collaborative nature of performing arts encourages teamwork, compromise, and commitment.” Acting Academy for Kids offers voice, piano & guitar lessons, acting classes, a musical theater series each season throughout the year (a Spring Series performance of GREASE starts in April) as well as an innovative series of summer camps. “Our camps are a great way to ‘test-drive’ the stage,” says Maggie, "Athletes and introverted or shy students learn just as much as kids who are natural performers. They gain the confidence to speak in public and explore a new form of self-expression.”

Each week-long camp introduces a different kidvoted, popular theme, and campers have the option to enroll for one week, all ten, or anywhere in between. Kids ages four through thirteen can participate, and no experience is required. With a low flat fee, flexible scheduling, and convenient locations in San Juan Capistrano and San Clemente, the Academy’s camps are ideal for busy parents who are seeking economical and enriching summer activities for their kids. At the Academy’s flagship location in SJC, four distinctive daily classes provide the structure for summer camp, with each segment focusing on one element of the production—music, dance, acting, or fine arts. Outdoor breaks and lunchtime punctuate the schedule and provide students with an opportunity to refresh and play in the adjacent grassy park between sessions. Kids are divided into age groups with limited class sizes, allowing each performer to have a chance to get involved. The week culminates in a mini-musical performance on Friday afternoon in which every student has a role. Friends and family are invited to attend and cheer for their stars. Extended scheduling options offer flexibility for parents and even more instruction for camp participants. Camp hours are 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., with an early bird Sunrise Studio from 8 a.m. to 9 a.m. and an after hours Camp Unplugged from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. Seasoned Activity Directors—typically college theater and/or education majors—facilitate the extended programs as well as teach the technical aspects of performances. Select Academy alumni teens also volunteer to make the campers’ experience a fulfilling one. Acting Academy for Kids has enjoyed “training the next generation of talented performers” for nearly seven years, and the organization’s commitment to its founding principles and the community has generated a loyal following. Students from as far away as San Diego County and Newport Beach come to study with the Zygos, and Parenting OC named the Academy “Best Theater School” and “Best Children’s Live Theater” in 2013. “We have so much more to come,” offers Stephen, "We love to contribute to children growing into confident, creative young adults.” Check out ActingAcademyforKids.com for schedules, themes, and details about summer camps, the Spring Musical (GREASE), and other upcoming projects. See you on stage!

Laguna Beach

QUESTION: What do I do if a bee stings me? —Amanda, San Clemente

Laguna Niguel

ROSS MEDICAL: The stinger should be removed as soon as possible as more venom is injected through the detached stinger for a minute or two. One can use tweezers, forceps or even a credit card in a sweeping or brushing motion. If these are not available, the stinger should be removed as soon as possible with a pinch of the fingers. If the sting results in an immediate sharp pain, treat the area with a cold compress or ice pack as soon as possible.

San Juan Capistrano Santa Barbara

15% OFF Any One Item*

*With purchase of $100 or more. Applies to clothing and shoes only. Does not include jewelry, accessories, candles or skincare products. Not to be combined with any other discount or offer. Good through 4/30/14.

Antihistamine medications such as Benadryl, Zyrtec or Claritin can help reduce some of the swelling or subsequent itching. Some persons may have a more severe allergic reaction to some of the protein molecules in the bee’s venom. This could result in a whole body reaction such as swelling at the sting site or in the face and airway. Any sign of shortness of breath should be evaluated in the emergency room as soon as possible and is considered a serious emergency. Even an outbreak of hives can signal a possible oncoming “anaphylactic” reaction which may cause a closing of the airway, a racing heart and a drop in blood pressure causing fainting. Persons with a suspected or confirmed history of a more severe reaction to bee stings should see their doctor for a prescription for an EpiPen. The EpiPen can deliver a potential life-saving dose of epinephrine to prevent serious symptoms until the patient can see a physician. —Andrew Klein, MD

Flu shots available No Appointment Necessary!

BY BONNIE SMALL

For more than a decade, Tannins Restaurant has been a fixture in San Juan Capistrano. The menu has certainly evolved over the years, but the emphasis on the simplicity and complexity of wine and food pairing remains central. Tannins does a remarkably good job of making wine approachable as evidenced by Sommelier Jesse Clanton’s Weekly Wine Flight, which highlights one winery at a time (Kuleto Estate during my visit) and offers a perfect way to expand your wine horizons. Tannins’ cheese platter makes all others look like 98-pound weaklings! A selection of five cheeses is presented with a generous array of fresh fruits and berries along with nuts and honey-drizzled crostini. Chef Abraham Nava creates a short list of weekly specials made with seasonal ingredients and during our visit the Watermelon and Cantaloupe salad grabbed my attention and wouldn’t let it go! A mound of spring greens, jicama, and carrots is tossed in a light pomegranate vinaigrette and kicked up with generous spears of prosciutto-wrapped cantaloupe and watermelon wedges sprinkled with Cajun spices: genius+scrumptious. With a little luck, this salad will migrate over to the regular menu! I’d heard that people come from miles around for Tannins’ Butternut Squash Ravioli and, after one bite, I knew exactly why. These al dente pasta pillows are stuffed with butternut squash and drizzled with browned butter kissed with truffle oil, toasted hazelnuts, and frizzled sage. Another dinner winner is the Chicken Marsala. The kitchen turns out expertly executed chicken escalopes gently sautéed to juicy perfection served with a woodsy mushroom Marsala sauce that is magical when paired with either the linguine or garlic vegetables on the side. Along with wonderful wines and an equally super menu, Tannins sweetens the deal by offering 2 for 1 dinner entrées seven days a week (with The Local Dish coupon), as well as Wine Wednesdays (½ off any bottle of wine with the purchase of 2 entrées). Cheers!
