This is our weekly guest-blog post from the moms behind Red Tricycle, a site that focuses on the "lighter side" of parenting. Every week, they'll be bringing us their picks of stuff to do around the Bay Area with kids.

Got a little one with a big personality who loves to be the center of attention? Or a shy but precocious child whom you just know would blossom in an environment of supportive friends and instructors? Drama and theater classes for kids can be a fun, structured activity for kids ready to build skills in public speaking and dramatic play. If your child’s been bitten by the acting bug, you’re in luck, the Bay Area has plenty of respectable drama classes to help them make their debut!
