The workshop will be a mix of theory, observation and practical.

Participation will be limited to a maximum of 25 - 30 (on a first-come-first-served basis).

Registration Fees: Rs 1,000/- to be paid in Cash Only (Notes and study material will be provided - theory and practical teaching).

Think With Ink:

A Children's Theatre Workshop

Sea View Room (NCPA Tata Theatre Building)

Saturday, 18th – 10.00 am to 2.00 pm

Children will first be treated to a storytelling session where they themselves will play the characters and bring them to life. Then they will learn how to write their own stories and poems, the difference between ‘showing’ and ‘telling’, how to write ‘visually’, and what are the elements of a good story – plot, characterization, climax, structure, etc. in a way that is simultaneously fun and instructive.

Children between 6-12 years of age are eligible for participation.

For registration please contact: Shivani Tibrewala on 93202 91157 or email: or visit: for further details. You can also pick up a brochure at the NCPA box office.
