The Philippine Educational Theater Association (PETA) recognizes the deep hunger of the Filipino actor to continue to hone his craft bringing acting to a higher, more challenging, and more fulfilling vista of creativity. Some of the artists would have to go abroad to explore methods and techniques apart from what is offered locally.

This year, PETA is partnering with The Stella Adler Studio of Acting, NY. Stella Adler believes that “Growth as an actor and growth as a human being are synonymous.” Adler’s philosophy has served as a guiding light to many prominent actors in the business today.

The Stella Adler Studio of Acting brings to the Philippines two of its finest and in-demand faculty members to conduct an intensive 55-hour Advanced Class for Professional Actors: Mr. Andrew Wade and Mr. Don Williams.

This workshop aims to equip and edify the Filipino actor with skills in Voice, Text and Scene Study.

Class Schedule:

“The actor’s artistic impulse—often cultivated and nurtured by a strong teacher or school—provides the fuel that propels him or her to work, which attracts agents, casting directors, producers, and, ultimately, audience.”

- Tom Openheim, Artistic Director, The Stella Adler Studio of Acting
