Theatre for Kids Redefined- Delhi « Mummy Knows Best - The hands-on mum's guide to cool kids' stuff


Summer is over, the kids are back in school, attacking homework, putting aside paintbrushes and shin guards. But that doesn’t mean that the creative  pursuits they went after in the holidays should languish.

Here is a wonderful and highly unusual theatre workshop for kids called Sandbox (that whole idea of digging in and making something out of nothing), that takes place over

a month, three times a week. Run by the inventive and improv-happy Tadpole Repertory, your child will unleash imagination and physicality, and have a blast doing

it. In the words of the organisers, Sandbox is ‘a programme about digging into familiar ideas to build fascinating stories. ’ Theatre workshops have become a dime a dozen, but very few challenge children to expand their limits.

In this programme ‘children use theatre games and improvisation, arts and crafts, and movement, music and voice toexplore fundamental ideas from science, history, geography, and current events. They experience these concepts not only intellectually, but physically, emotionally, imaginatively and personally.’

My friend Mala’s

son has been doing workshops with this group for a few years and he just loves them. To them, the process is as important as the performance at the end – and really- that’s what theatre is all about.
