Pune: City-based theatre group Theatron’s two-day ‘Year End Theatre Festival’ started at The Box theatre on Saturday.
The festival includes a musical show, a magic show, an interaction with authors Pranav Sakhdeo and Rishikesh Gupta as well as an interaction with actor and screenwriter Girish Kulkarni about the present and future of theatre.
Theatron is also conducting workshops focusing on the sense of theatre and arts and craft in children as well as ways to execute an idea in theatre and develop it through writing.
“The night curfew has forced us to tweak our timings slightly. We are ending our performances by 10pm so that the audience can be home by 11pm. The shows are also being livestreamed for those unable to attend,” said Suraj Parasnis of the Theatron group.
The festival is being headlined by four plays — two each in Hindi and Marathi — as well as online play ‘Tahkoob’, and a dramatic reading of the play ‘Don Special’. Theatron is producing the plays, written and directed by Parasnis and Virajas Kulkarni. TNN
