Theater Arts Workshops at the PETA Theater Center

Quezon City, Philippines — Want a fresh start this summer? Actors and aspiring actors can now spend their summer in a more fun and active way. Philippine Educational Theater Association (PETA) annual Summer Theater Arts Workshop is open for another month of creative learning. The available workshops are not just for those young ones—but also for those who are young at heart.

PETA’s student-centered workshops highlight the limitless creative potential of each participant, allowing students to fully express themselves, boost their confidence, and mount their own stories into original productions.

The month-long classes held at The PETA Theater Center are culminated by a full showcase at the 400-seater PETA-Phinma Theater, giving each participant the chance to shine under the limelight of a legitimate stage. Courses run for an average of 14 to 20 sessions ending in a showcase performance for all participants from each of the different courses.

PETA’s Children’s Theater courses enable children to explore and experience music, movement and dance, visual arts, storytelling, drama improvisation, poetry and simple story writing.

Coupled with lots of fun and games, PETA’s creative processes will also develop and enrich every child’s imagination, inspiration, self-confidence, self-appreciation and appreciation of others, nature and culture.

The Teen Theater course challenges the experimental and adventurous nature of the youth through the unique PETA Integrated Theater Arts approach. The course mixes creative drama, creative sounds and music, creative writing, creative body movements and dance, visual arts as well as improvisational theater and new media, allowing teens to express their talents and articulate youth power as they mount their own original piece on relevant youth concerns as part of their recital.

Young aspiring actors, from 17 years old and up, can acquire fundamental knowledge, skills and attitudes in improvisational theater production, theater history, theater appreciation, aesthetics and criticism through the Theater Arts course.

PETA is also offering various advanced courses. The Basic Acting course features a series of dialogues with seasoned theater artists, coupled with motivated acting exercises which can turn anyone into a budding stage actor.

The Creative Musical Theater 1 and 2 courses has various sessions on voice, composition, performance, and music explorations.

The workshop will run from April 7 – May 18, 2014 at The PETA Theater Center, located at No. 5 Eymard Drive, New Manila, Quezon City, For enrollment inquiries and for further details, contact PETA at 725-6244 loc. 14-15, 0906 5564800,
