In all of its courses, PETA manages to incorporate the fundamentals of theater such as body movement, music, writing, and drama giving enrolees the opportunity to obtain the experience and skill of a true thespian.

Basic Acting for Theater provides its students the chance to learn more about the fundamentals of a good performance which is just perfect for first-time performers wanting to improve their skill on improvisation and composition.
