The Philippine Educational Theater Association (PETA) has recently opened its 42nd Theater Season. As part of its Theater Appreciation Program, the company is inviting bloggers to watch its performances for FREE. Since the opening of its new home, the PETA Theater Center, PETA has created a space for experiential learning and the promotion of culture and the arts – opening its doors to various types of audiences: students, theater enthusiast and artists alike.

Joining is easy. Bloggers need to send their names, contact numbers and a link to their sample blog to petampro@yahoo.com.

PETA will choose the top 20 bloggers, which will be notified through email. The lucky bloggers chosen will get a chance to watch PETA’s opening production, Noli at Fili Dekada 2000 (Dos Mil) for FREE. They should then write a review of the play to avail of the season pass. Back stage passes, special house seats and an exclusive interview with the director and cast of PETA’s productions are also up for grabs!

Lined-up for the season are three of PETA’s plays: Noli at Fili Dekada 2000 (Dos Mil), a contemporized adaptation of Rizal’s Noli at Fili written by Nicanor Tiongson and directed by Soxie Topacio (July 17 – August 9 2009); Ismail at Isabel, a play about children’s rights, the celebration of individuality and respect for each one’s race, religion and culture, written by Rody Vera and directed by Maribel Legarda (August 28 – October 4, 2009); BOTO Another Musical, a musical comedy on the Philippine Elections written by award-winning librettist Vince de Jesus together with Liza Magtoto and Anj Heruela and directed by Phil Noble (February 5 – March 7, 2010).

Deadline for applications is on July 26, 2009. For inquiries or more information, contact PETA at 4100821-22 / 725-6244, 0917-8044428, petampro@yahoo.com or visit PETA’s website at http://www.petatheater.com.
