boasts arts education, led by high-quality teachers with expertise in education, the arts, and working with kids. AA4K offers musical theater, vocal lessons, film and TV production classes (AA4K Studios). “Education is the cornerstone of our performing arts program,” commented Stephen. “I always wanted to have my own space to produce an educational, performance-focused program that would allow kids to have fun, but also help them develop essential life skills.” AA4K is more than a summer program or an afternoon workshop. The kids that go through AA4K form lifelong relationships and learn the essentials of team building. Some of these kids end up with friendships through the program that last through their teen years and beyond. Parents Give AA4K a Standing Ovation “I love AA4K! I love how vibrant and energetic the team is,” said parent Anik Rubalcava. “The kids learned how to speak in front of large audiences, rehearse and practice. It is great for fostering friendships, learning how to be on a team, and being flexible about taking on various roles.”

PARENTS & KIDS RAVE THAT AA4K

IS THE BEST IN THE OC! BY DINA SCAGLIONE

There’s an old adage; necessity is the mother of invention. That certainly rings true when it comes to the creation and evolution of Acting Academy for Kids in Laguna Niguel. Stephen Zygo, Founder of Acting Academy for Kids (AA4K), always wanted to run a performing arts studio for children. Growing up in a performing arts family, he experienced the powerful effect it has on a child’s burgeoning intellect, their self-esteem and social identity. Small in stature but athletic, Stephen excelled in both sports and theater. With his vocal talent and musical theatre acumen, he quickly discovered he could land more lead roles on stage than win trophies on the field. It was on stage where Stephen developed a strong sense of self. He could be quirky and funny and try on a variety of personas. He also learned to navigate the array of emotions that accompanied playing a leading role or being a part of an ensemble cast. This spectrum of experiences allowed Stephen to cultivate his ability to lead, educate and equip children and teens with the skills that will prepare them for roles both on and off the stage. Why Performing Arts for Kids? Armed with a musical theater background and a passion for education, Stephen spent his early career teaching at St. Mary’s School in Aliso Viejo. Stephen directed the school's performing arts program, ultimately shaping the lives of hundreds of students. This led Stephen and his wife Maggie to create Acting Academy for Kids in Stephen’s 4th grade classroom. Soon after, during the down economy of the mid-2000’s, Stephen and his wife found themselves without jobs. They knew, however, that they wanted to create a scalable educational environment that could reach more kids and positively impact families. With diminishing funding for the arts in schools, AA4K began to fill that void by offering affordable performing arts pro-

“We have two daughters (ages 8 and 7) who have participated in multiple AA4K musical theatre offerings and their experiences have been nothing short of amazing,” commented parent Ryan VogtLowell. “AA4K’s staff members are organized, caring and patient throughout the entire process, and genuinely committed to developing the children’s confidence, self-esteem and team working skills.” Future AA4K Look for upcoming spring musicals: Disney’s Frozen and Harry Potter. Plan ahead and sign up early for AA4K’s summer camps which tend to fill up quickly. For more information, visit ActingAcademyForKids.com or call 949.427.0072 (text or leave a voice message).

grams to families. “For performing arts to be effective, it has to be fun and engaging for the kids,” shared Stephen. “Our experiential workshops not only shape a child’s self-image, but they’re a lot of fun, too.” They would eventually partner with a local South Orange County theater, producing a multitude of performing arts programs and summer camps for more than 9 years. In 2017, the Academy spread its wings and opened in three locations; San Clemente, Laguna Niguel and Irvine. It has since trained and inspired over 12,000 students! What Makes AA4K Different? While some performing arts academies focus on what it takes to break into Hollywood, AA4K

Sabroso Craft Beer, Taco & Music Festival, powered by Gringo Bandito, returns to Doheny State Beach in Dana Point for its sixth year on Saturday, April 6 and Sunday, April 7, bringing craft beer, mouthwatering tacos, and live entertainment to the oceanfront. After selling out for two years in a row, Sabroso at Doheny State Beach expands to two days, giving craft beer connoisseurs and taco aficionados the opportunity to sample an extensive collection of brews and tacos while watching lucha libre style wrestling, playing lawn games, and enjoying live performances from The Offspring, Flogging Molly, Bad Religion, Descendents, Good Charlotte, Black Flag and more.

Sabroso brings together an array of breweries and the region’s top chefs and restaurants, highlighting the rapidly growing craft beer and taco scene in Southern California. Attendees 21+ will taste unlimited samples of 200 craft beers from 50 fan-favorite breweries including Avery Brewing, Artifex Brewing, Brooklyn Brewery, Burning Beard Brewing, MadeWest Brewing, Russian River Brewing, The Shop Beer, and 805. Food fanatics will experience an array of flavor from renowned Southern California taco vendors including Panchos Tacos, Border Tacos, Good Fellas Tacos, Vegan Taco Company, and more. Spicy Bite will serve creative Indian-Mexican fusion dishes like jackfruit in chile rojo tacos topped with fresh chutney. Fan-favorite classics will also be available including 24-hour marinated carnitas from Chronic Tacos and fresh shrimp tacos from Sol Agave. Taco vendors will have the opportunity to compete in the coveted “Best in Show” with their most unique creations, voted on by esteemed judges. World-champion competitive eater Takeru Kobayashi of Nagano, Japan returns to Sabroso on Sunday to defend his 2018 Gringo Bandito Chronic Tacos Eating Champion title in the 9th Annual Gringo Bandito Chronic Tacos Challenge. Additionally, taco creations from food vendors will compete for the coveted Sabroso “Best of Show,” awarded by a panel of food judges, while The Offspring lead singer Dexter Holland’s top-rated hot sauce, Gringo Bandito, will be available throughout the festival for sampling. Complimentary craft beer tastings last until 4 p.m., and tacos will be available to purchase all day. Single Day tickets start at $59.50, and Weekend tickets start at $89.50, while supplies last.
