Theatre is the perfect way to engage young minds – bringing them a multiple sensory experience that can be rivalled by none. Leon’s World Centre for Holistic Learning and Development understands the impact that theatre has on children and the importance of weaning them away from electronic devices by giving them alternative medium of entertainment. So what better way to start the summer vacations than with a healthy dose of theatre that makes stories come to life.
On the 22nd of April, Leon’s World will be hosting the play Vikram Betal. Parents may well recall the stories of King Vikram and the mischievous ghoul Betal from their childhood days and here at Leon’s World they can watch their children get hooked to this unique story as well.
Staged by Magical Whispers, the other interesting aspect of the performance is that the story will be enthusiastically presented using life size puppets which are crafted entirely from recycled materials; thus, extending an important message of environmental conservation to the children as well. Drama and dance will enthral the kids as Betal tries his hardest to hoodwink the brave and clever King Vikram and give him the slip. The play has been well received at Under The Peepal Tree Festival where it was staged last month.
Magical Whispers has had a long association with Leon’s World where several of their plays have been hosted including Brahmaputra –The Story of a Mysterious River. Founded by Shraddha Sheth, Kavita Rajput and Madhuri Kale, Magical Whispers adheres to its vision of bringing alive the passion for performance and spreading it amongst children. They bring epic stories and folk tales to life alive through recycled art. A combination of Dance, Drama, Puppetry and Songs – they present the perfect recipe to create magic for every child.
