BUSTI 2016

Earlier this year, I decided that I wanted to do a pre – college summer theatre program. I did a whole lot of research and compiled a list of good summer programs, which you can look at here. My top choice was the Boston University Summer Theatre Institute. I had looked at the website and…

My Trip to the Ninasam Theatre Institute

Last week, I was on holiday with my mum and two of my friends, when we came across the famous Ninasam Theatre Institute and decided to go in and check it out. Inside, we met an alumnus of the Institute who very kindly agreed to show us around. He took us to the auditorium and…

Plays I Watched in 2015

Here are the plays I watched last year. Many of them are still being performed if you would like to watch them 🙂 Since I started my blog exactly a year ago, I thought it would be appropriate to put up this list 🙂 Rid.

Summer School

Hi everyone! I have decided that this summer I want to do a summer theatre program at a university/ conservatory so that I can learn new things and meet people who are just as passionate about theatre as I am. Now, to do this, I needed to research and find out where I could find a good program that…

Swami and Friends

Hi everyone! Yesterday I went to watch a play based on Swami and Friends by R.K. Narayan. The play was performed in Ranga Shankara, but had also been performed in Jagriti Theatre earlier in the month. The story of Swami and all his adventures in the little fictional town of Malgudi is quite well known, and…

Ushering

Hi everyone! A while ago, my theatre school performed a play called “Marvelous Matilda”. I didn’t perform in the play, but I was an usher for all four shows. This was the first time I had ever been an usher for something so big, and it was a pretty interesting experience. I knew being an usher…

Advice

Hi everyone! A few weeks ago, I went to a theatre event with my mum and over there we met one of her friends who is also involved in theatre. We had actually seen him perform in a play called “Marry Go Round”. There was some time left for the event to start, so we were talking to him…

The Peacock Prince

Hi everyone! Last week I watched a play called The Peacock Prince in Ranga Shankara. It was performed by Theatre Nisha from Chennai and directed by V. Balakrishnan. The play was a dance drama based on a story from the Mahabharata. Since the Mahabharata is very complicated, I shall not attempt to explain this story….

Marketing Theatre

Hi everyone! Most people relate theatre to the acting, direction, lights, sounds or sets, which is perfectly all right, but another major part of theatre is marketing it. Basically, if no one comes to watch your play, the acting, directing and sets are of no point. I thought I would write about this as my…

Wicked

Hi everyone! So last month I went with my theatre school to London and Paris! It was a really exciting trip and I had loads and loads of fun. 🙂 On the trip we watched two plays on West End: Wicked and Mamma Mia! Before we watched Wicked, we did a workshop with one of the…

The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time

Hi Everyone! Last Weekend, I went for a movie in PVR Phoenix. It was called “The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time”. What was interesting about it was that it was not really a movie, but a play on the West End which had been filmed. So basically it was like watching a play on a…

Drama Schools

Hi Everyone! Recently I saw an article in the Times Of India which was an ad from the National School of Drama in Delhi. The ad was for a theatre festival that they are holding and how to participate and send your entries in. Here is the article, just in case anyone is interested. You’re…
