PETA OFFERS NEW CYCLE OF ONLINE WORKSHOPS, AND HERE’S WHY YOU SHOULD JOIN

After a successful streaming of its musical Rak of Aegis, the 54-year old theater company, Philippine Educational Theater Association (PETA), delivers its unique brand of theater training to your doorsteps through its upcoming cycle of online workshops from September to October 2021.

Aimed at providing an avenue for learning and creative expression for starters and professionals, PETA’s exclusive online workshops are tailored to meet the demands of adults who are looking for personal artistic development in between their busy work-from-home schedules.

Apart from having a chance to grow artistically, there’s a few other reasons why joining a PETA workshop is a worthwhile investment for aspiring artists.

1) Be trained by practicing artists and teachers. PETA’s online workshops provide access to some of the company’s finest artist-teachers, who have gone through an intensive teacher training program. This faculty training ensures that participants will experience PETA’s signature curriculum from well-rounded teachers who have rich theater practice and excellent teaching abilities. Teachers for the upcoming workshop cycles include Meann Espinosa and Kiks Baento for Acting for Beginners, Jeff Hernandez and Zoe Damag for Creative Musical Theater, Phil Noble and Ian Segarra for Acting for Screen, and J-Mee Katanyag for Writing for Performance.

2) It encourages collaboration and connection in a safe setting. Online theater classes are a great way to collaborate, connect and engage with other artists remotely. It provides a unique opportunity to experience a kind of community that we don’t have enough of, especially during these extraordinary times.

3) It’s a step towards realizing a dream.  A theater workshop is almost always the first step to a creative career in the performing arts. Now is the perfect time for aspiring artists to hone a skill or try something that they have always wanted to. Participants of PETA’s online workshops can finally kickstart their writing journey, learn the ropes of acting for camera, hone their performance and singing skills, and flex their acting muscles.

4) It redefines performance and creative spaces. Without a physical space that defines where art is made, now any place can transform into a creative hub. Participants don’t need the structure of a classroom or the stage in a theater to make art —it can now happen wherever and whenever. 

5) It’s a way to remind yourself that you are not alone. Studies have shown that involvement in the arts can decrease anxiety and loneliness, increased sense of value and purpose, and other emotional benefits. Through theater, not only are we sharing a part of ourselves through creative expression, it also allows us to have a shared experience and valuable connection with other people.

These are only a few of the many reasons why one should be involved in the arts. For interested applicants, PETA’s virtual doors are now open for professionals, or to any serious beginner or aspiring artist.
