Summer Theatre Workshop Module

This workshop is a space to play, explore and have fun with our quirky, fun and over the top ideas! Vikram Seth's 'Beastly Tales' is also a playful and quirky take on the well-known collection of ten fables in poetry, ranging from India, Greece, China, Ukraine to the Land of Gup.  Apparently, he wrote them while he was on a summer break too! 

In this workshop, children will read, understand and perform some of these tales and through that explore aspects like story, character and plot inherent in these tales.


  • Enhance coordination and group learning using tools like movement and improvisation.
  • Understanding the basic elements of a good story that help in creative thinking.
  • A short performance at the end of the workshop using tools of theatre making like costumes, objects, props that will give them confidence and eliminate stage fear.
  • Enhance communication skills using voice and modulation techniques.
