Children Theater Workshop Concludes with staging two plays A month long theater workshop for children conducted by Martand Foundation concluded on June 16th with staging of two plays ‘Man ki Baat’ and ‘Mohammad bhai ki dushman’ at the OTS hall of Central Public School, Udaipur. The program began with the blessings of Lord Ganesh in the form ‘Ganpati Vandana’. The first play titled ‘Man ki Baat’ displayed intelligence of Beerbal, noble of Akabar the great, over a question with the help of a poor wood cutter and an old lady. Beerbal proved that whatever thoughts we posses about others, the same thoughts are reflected by others to us. Darshita Bhalla as Sutradhar, Austin George as Akabar, Rimjhim Jain as Beerbal, Mohammad Tanzeem as wood cutter and Yamini Chouhan as the old lady impressed audience with their talent. ‘Mohammad bhai ki dushman’ was a longer play of 45 minutes, but the spectators were so engrossed that they kept on laughing and appreciating young actors and play ended on a happy note. Sutradhar(Yashu Dixit) declared in beginning itself that the play is aimed at eradicating tensions and providing healthy entertainment. Mohmmad bhai (Shubham
Sharma) is a peculiar old man, famously known in the entire village for his decaying pair of Juties(pair of shoes) which he has been using for the last 35 years. After getting final warning from his fast friend Jumman Miyan (Nishad Pandey), he buys new Juties, but getting rid of old juties becomes a tedious job. Wherever he disposes them off, they come back to him through one or another source, puzzling him and creating funny situations on stage. The “little” actor’s smartly delivered dialogues, and entertained audience with their natural expressions imbibing latent message.Both the popular plays have been staged on different stages, one of which was presented by the inmates from the Central Jail, Udaipur. The plays were simple and
well understood and enjoyed by the participants. The work of Jovial Sinha as Kirmich bhai and Jugnu in evoking laughter besides playing Tabla, Nishad Pandey as Jumman Miyan and for his melodious voice and background score, Bhavyan Khokhawat as Badlu kissan, Harija Pandey as Dhanno, Ojaswinini Singh and Rashi Rajawat as male thieves (Kalu and Balu) and female security personnel, Himja Pandey as Heera ox and Rani, Mukul Audichya as Moti ox and Lallan Miyan and Yashu Dixit as the narrator was applauded and well appreciated by the audience. Shubham Sharma (recipient of scholarship from
Centre for Cultural Resources and Training) assisted during production, besides playing protagonist with high proficiency. Deepak Joshi, Pandit Avadh Kishor Pandey and Garima Joshi shared their experience in voice modulation, music and dance during this production oriented workshop. Dr. Shail Choyal, the chief guest commented ‘I was overwhelmed by the presentation of plays. Moreover, the performance of children was full of creative exuberance. I assure parents that experience of theater helps in personality development of children. My hearty congratulations.’ Shri Deepak Joshi, guest of honor said, ‘The quality of plays prepared during workshop displays rays of hope for future.
