PEOPLE have been using their newfound “extra” time at home to learn something new, whether it’s literature, a foreign language, or the art of baking. Now, Repertory Philippines gives you the chance to explore the world of theater from your home. Get the full REP workshop experience through intensive online classes running from July 6 to 31, 2020.
For decades, REP has offered summer workshops to train the next generation of theater talent. And in fact many of REP’s talented workshop students have entered professional theater through the workshops and they now proudly join the ranks of REP’s roster of professional actors.
The classes are taught by seasoned REP actors and veterans. Beyond teaching theater performance skills, the workshops have also helped students gain real life skills that last a lifetime. The classes build confidence, enhance communication skills, improve kinesthetic learning, sharpen memory skills, heighten creativity and aptitude, and develop an appreciation for discipline, focus and teamwork.
REP’s Workshops for the Performing Arts include Musical Theater classes that teach the basics of acting, singing and dancing – skills required for musical theater. Enrollees will be grouped by age: Kiddies (ages 4-8), Pre-Teens (ages 9-12), Teens (ages 13-16), and Adults (ages 17 and up). Also, for students who wish to focus on honing a specialty such as voice, or dance and movement, special classes are being offered on Voice, as well as Dance and Movement, both with an emphasis on musical theater performance.
For the first time, REP is launching a class on costume design, which is open to creatives and enthusiasts aged 16 and above. Costume Design for Children’s Theater Musicals will be taught by US-based costume designer Raven Ong. Ong has been responsible for many of REP’s dazzling costumes. He has been nominated thrice for the prestigious Gawad Buhay for Outstanding Costume Design.
Enrollment is now open with a fee of P6,000 for the Musical Theater classes, P6,000 for the special classes in Voice, as well as Dance and Movement, and P8,000 for the costume design class, but if you register before June 8, you can avail of the 10% off Early Bird Offer.
