This intensive workshop will take place Tuesdays and Wednesdays 6-8PM and culminate in the play "A Little Piece of God," to be performed at the BVOH July 16/17 and 23/24. The workshop is open to all adults with or without prior acting experience, and mature younger teens are admitted occasionally. Fee for the workshop is $210 and limited financial aid is available.

Teen Programs This summer the Bayview Opera House is offering video, acting, financial literacy and college/career counseling programs to teens free of charge. June 20 - August 2
The video community reporting program is conducted by the Bayview Opera House in partnership with the Bay Area Video Coalition (BAVC). While learning how to use cameras and computers for videos, students will be challenged to use visual language to document our Dare to Dream ARTS program, create a commercial for it, as well as tell stories about themselves, their community and the imagined future. Students will be actors, directors, editors, and camerapeople, and will learn basic video editing in iMovie. Each student will participate in creating several novies and get to publish their work to YouTube. Some of their creations will be broadcast on Public Access Television as well.
Acting for Life

Career and College Readiness - private sessions
College and Career Counseling is provided courtesy of the San Francisco Bar Association through their School-to-College program. In individual sessions throughout the summer program students will work with the counselor to develop individual action plans that support the student's life goals and life situations. These action plans are to ensure students are not only feeling comfortable with their action plan but empowered to put these plans into action. High juniors and seniors will be given priority access.
