PETA - Capability Building Program

Basic Integrated Theater Arts Workshop for Young People

Designed to provide young members of drama clubs with basic knowledge, skills and attitude on theater, the workshop is offered to partner theater organizations. Basic theater workshops are facilitated by young artist-teachers.
MTTL ensures youth empowerment through such partnership. Through the years, it has proven the effectiveness of Youth-to-Youth approach, whereby young people teach other young people. The youth participants are able to communicate more effectively using their own sub-cultural lingo and feel more comfortable among peers and equals.

Specialized Theater Workshop

Short courses on play writing, Dance Theater, visual arts, basic acting, technical theater, stage management and music scoring are given to partner organizations as preparation for the youth theater festival. Specialized workshops are facilitated by senior PETA artists and members.

Repertory Theater Guidance

Aimed to raise the level of aesthetic of youth groups participating in the youth theater festival, the RTG sessions are conducted hand-in-hand by MTTL Core Group members and PETA junior directors. Partner organizations are assisted during the production phase -- from mounting, critiquing, technical rehearsal to actual performance and evaluation.

Theater-in-Education Class

One of the essential activities of MTTL’s educational program for the secondary school is the Theater-in-Education class for school-based drama groups. It is a drama course that contains core values of PETA’s educational theater, and uses integrated theater arts approach and uses participants’ experiences/history/reflections on social issues as sources for materials and stories. The course is composed by three areas, namely; (1) Basic Integrated Theater Arts Concepts; (2) History of Philippine Theater, and (3) Production Work/Exposures. PETA artists work hand-in-hand with drama group advisers to implement the course from July to March. Each session runs for 2 hours per week for the entire school year.

Eight secondary schools participated in the pilot implementation of the program from school year 2004 – 2006: Ramon Magsaysay High School-Manila, Mariano Marcos Memorial High School, Salvador Araneta Memorial Institute, Lagro High School, Jose Abad Santos High School, Stella Maris College, Siena College, and St. Joseph Catholic School.

Continuing Education Program for Teachers and Adult Leaders

Part of PETA’s commitment in raising the quality of teacher’s education, various training and seminars are offered to partner teachers and drama club advisers. Basic and advanced courses include creative pedagogy, Asian and Philippine theater, Theater Arts, Dance Theater, basic acting and directing, and organizational development sessions.
