PETA Theater Appreciation Program


Here's how you can help:


Public school children can hardly afford to come to watch PETA plays and yet this can be a magical and powerful experience that makes Philippine culture, history and identity come alive for them. PETA plays are meant to enhance classroom learning and to shape values among the young.

PETA wants to find donors to allow learning through theater to be more accessible to these children and youth. After all, exposure to the arts and theater in particular increases their learning capacity and motivates them to learn more in school.

Help PETA bring in more public school students to the Theater Center. Donate to the PETA Theater Appreciation Program (PETA-TAP)

It only takes P500 per child to give them this potentially life-changing experience.


PETA pursues its education work through workshops conducted for different age levels and sectors.

Developed through the years, PETA's workshop is based on the principle that every person regardless of economic status or education level has a potential mine of talent uniquely his or her own. This workshop curriculum is an effective instrument for bringing these talents to the fore. .

PETA's curriculum is not just about theatre but it also uses the multi-intelligence approach to foster learning on many different levels, a method PETA has evolved since the late 1960's.

It is this powerful pedagogy that PETA intends to share especially with marginalized groups through scholarships.

Although the workshop is taught in the language of the arts the content is really about life skills with a strong focus on creativity and resourcefulness. After all, a creative person can find always find solutions to real-life problems.

PETA gives workshops in Children's Theater, Teen Theater, Theater Arts (for Adults), Creative Pedagogy to help teachers enhance classroom teaching.

Fund a scholar for P10,000 for a workshop using the powerful Integrated Theater Arts approach.


When PETA moved into its new home, the Theater Center, it brought over vintage theater equipment from its original home, the Rajah Sulayman Theater in Fort Santiago.

The company has gradually embarked on an acquisition program. However the wish list is long. It is urgent that these equipment be upgraded since PETA takes its plays on mobile tours around Metro Manila and the provinces where PETA performs for audiences that are over a thousand at a time.

PETA needs state of the art equipment which is portable enough and can withstand the wear and tear of bringing PETA's performances to various public spaces throughout the country. Having modern equipment will enable the company to continue to serve its publics in an excellent and professional manner.

PETA's technical equipment wish list can be made available to those interested to help. Donations may be made in terms of monetary contributions or in kind.
