On 27th April, a theatre workshop was conducted for schoolchildren at Vikhe Patil Memorial School, Pune. The workshop aimed to introduce students to the art of theatre, enhance their creativity, and develop their confidence and communication skills through various theatrical activities. The objectives of the workshop were to introduce students to the basics of theatre and acting.  To foster creativity and imagination among the club members and to enhance students’ confidence and communication skills.  Moreover, it provides a platform for self-expression and self-discovery.

Four senior actors named, Ms. Dhanashree, Mr. Prem Gowda, and Mr. Robin Sing, belonging to Swatantra Theatre, Pune were invited to conduct a workshop.   They introduced the basics of the theatre to the students through a variety of games. The warm-up exercises were interesting as the club members enjoyed them to the fullest.
The highlight of the workshop was ‘Theatre Games’.  Various theatre games were conducted to encourage spontaneity, creativity, and teamwork among the students. Moreover, the club members were introduced to the concepts of improvisation through fun and interactive exercises.  They highlighted how dialogue delivery is of utmost importance and explained the aspects of the same in detail.  The importance of Audibility, clarity, and voice projection in the speech was elaborated in detail with examples and through tasks assigned to the students.   They were given scenarios and asked to improvise scenes, which allowed them to think on their feet, explore different characters, and unleash their creativity.

“This workshop helped me develop my confidence, improve my diction and voice modulation, and overall personality traits. I am looking forward to attending many more such sessions in the future as part of this club” said Purva Hole, a class 10 student after having asked how she found this workshop. Her feedback sufficed enough to summarize how this session was.
