PETA Holds Summer Program

The Philippine Educational Theater Association’s (PETA) School of People’s Theater, known for its fun-filled theater arts workshops, brings back the “PETA Summer Program.” PETA’s unique workshop curriculum combines the different disciplines of theater, such as creative writing, sound and music, dance and movement, and visual arts. This Integrated Theater Arts Approach is PETA’s brand of multiple intelligence education that has been around since the 1960s and has allowed our students to discover and appreciate their diverse talents.

A course for budding artists (ages 6 to 8), Children’s Theater 1 nourishes the imagination and self-confidence of every student. A perfect introduction to theater and arts for kids, this course will help them develop habits of routine and discipline through creative explorations in rhythmic movement, dance, songs, games, panting, puppetry, storytelling, and role-playing.
A course for ages 9 to 12, Children’s Theater 2 allows students to explore and experience music, movement and dance, visual arts, storytelling, drama and improvisation, poetry and short story writing, mixed with fun and games. This course will bring out the artist and actor in every child. They will enjoy various creative processes while enriching their imagination, self-appreciation, as well as respect for others, nature, and culture.
A course for young people (13-16 y.o.) who are involved in a budding theater guild or a part of a performing community group. The course will help participants channel their youthful energy into bursts of creativity. Students will explore improvisational theater and express their youth-oriented concerns through an original production that is geared towards the development of self and the community.
Aspiring artists, actors, and educators, 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.
The Theater Arts course is also an excellent training ground for educators to learn arts-based approaches to teaching that are participatory, interactive, integrative, and high in imaginative thinking.
Performers aged 18 and up looking to improve their tools may join the Basic Acting class. The course allows students to discover the disciplines of acting by learning the basic knowledge, skills and attitude in becoming a stage actor. Performers may also enhance their acting tools by exploring different acting styles and principles.
Musically inclined individuals aged 16 and up may explore the fine arts of musical theater by experiencing the elements of musical performance, composition, and production. The course allows students to understand the harmonization of the different fields that make a successful musical production.
