The world’s a virtual stage — take a PETA online workshop

After its successful streaming of the 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.

These exclusive online workshops are tailored to meet the demands of adults who want to pursue their passion in the theater arts in between their day jobs and other preoccupations.

Here are a few other reasons why joining this popular theater program will do wonders to your creative thinking and perhaps the current pace of your quarantined life.

Learn from the best artists and teachers. PETA’s online workshops provide access to some of the company’s finest artist-teachers (many of whom have industry awards to boot) 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.

Collabs and connection are done 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.

Get your acting dream going. 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.

Room for 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.

Make connections. 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.

Upskill or simply find another platform for your self-expression through this notable workshop. Know more about PETA’s courses here: or contact Betita Sarmiento at 0929-891-9538,
