My Little Caterpillar at the Trumpets Playshop 2014 Showcase

And just like that another summer is over!   It has been almost three weeks since my li’l girl’s theatre class ended and I’m still catching up with summer house cleaning.  Spending three days in a week as my little girl’s PA during her classes at the Trumpets Playshop was extremely tiring but knowing that she loved every minute she spent there is exceedingly gratifying.

Through Children’s Theater, kids age 4 – 6 years old learn to appreciate their God-given talents and to use them properly.  They are taught the basic elements of music, dance, and drama through fun and creative ways.  Kids are also inspired to always give their best to God.

“I learned how to be on stage. I also learned how to sing and dance.” – Jade              Thank you Teacher Joann and Teacher Joan for being patient with our li’l girl and for making her summer fun and meaningful! Thank you Teacher Audie for founding Trumpets Playshop!


Trumpets Playshop 2014 started on April 7 and ended with the Showcase on May 17.   That’s sixteen 1.5-hr sessions and a 1-hr technical rehearsal culminating in a showcase at the RCBC Theatre.  We shelled a total of P8,200 (excluding transpo and food expenses) for the workshop fee (P5,800), the costume (P1,200), the recital fee (P900), and the yearbook (P400).  That’s really no small amount for us but my husband allotted funds for it because he knows how our little Jade enjoys performing.  Besides, the joy of seeing your child happily performing on the “big” stage IS PRICELESS!

Are we going to enrol her again in Trumpets Playshop next summer? Yes! Never mind the thrice a week commute under the heat of the summer sun or the huge dent in our budget;   Our little thespian loves to perform and we love watching her have fun on stage.  🙂 Watch the videos here.

Trumpets Playshop Summer 2014

Schedule’s out and they’re now open for enrollment!  My little girl greatly enjoyed last year’s summer workshop.  It was also such a delight to watch her perform on stage during their recital at RCBC Theater.  (I just realized I never published the post about her recital…ooops!).  If you have kids who love the performing arts, the Trumpets Playshop Children’s Theater would be a great summer program for them.

TRUMPETS PLAYSHOP Summer Workshop 2013

Our little girl was one of the leads in their preschool mini-musical last December.  She performed really well and her teacher has since been encouraging us to enrol her in a theater class to develop her talent.

I checked the websites of PETA and TRUMPETS last December for workshops for young children.  Both would be conducting various workshops this summer but only TRUMPETS accept children as young as 4 years old.  So, TRUMPETS it is for little Jade and to take advantage of their early bird discount, we’re enrolling her before February 28.
