Summer Workshops

PETA’S WORKSHOP EXPRESS! THEATER WORKSHOPS FOR ALL

This coming April, the Philippine Educational Theater Association (PETA), one of the Philippines’ pioneer theater groups known for its original productions and educational workshops, opens its annual Summer Program for young kids, active teens and aspiring theater performers and artists.

The Summer Program features eight courses, which embody the company’s unique integrated theater arts curriculum PETA is notable for. Taught by PETA’s exceptional roster of artist-teachers, participants are ensured of a meaningful and fun-filled, creative experience.

Children’s Theater is an opportunity for children to let their imagination run wild. With two separate classes for little ones, ages 6-8 years old (Children’s Theater 1); and older kids, ages 9-12 years old (Children’s Theater 2), children are put in a setting where they can comfortably express their artistic potential, nourish their creativity, and build their self-confidence in a way that is appropriate to their age. Younger kids will be immersed in the art of rhythmic movement, dance, songs, games, painting, puppetry, storytelling, and role-playing done in various creative methods. Older ones will get to experience artistic discovery through explorations of music, visual arts, poetry and story writing, storytelling, and drama improvisation.
