Presented by the Kolkata Metropolitan Development Authority and British Council in association with Manchester Metropolitan University and supported by the RP-Sanjiv Goenka Group, the performing arts project for schools in India is back and seeks your school's participation.

The theme this year is 'India-UK: A Modern Fairytale'. It focuses on cultural relations between India and the UK. Titled 'India - UK: A Modern Fairytale'. If India and the UK revisited their past, how would they rewrite it today? Schools are invited to write a fairytale for these two countries, in the 21st Century. Will they live happily ever after?

The theme is inspired by Re-Imagine: India-UK Cultural Relations in the 21st Century, a research and evidence-based project which is reviewing the current relationship between the two countries and the shape it's likely to take in the next decade.

22 July 2012 is the last date of receiving scripts and summaries. Announcement of results for schools shortlisted for the semi-finals will be announced on 30 July. 45 schools will be shortlisted to perform in this year's semi-finals.

The semi finals will be held in New Delhi from 24 to 29 September. The results of the performances will be announced after the semi finals. Seven schools will be shortlisted to perform at the finals.

Theatre workshop sessions will be hosted in Kolkata for schools that perform at the finals from 29 to 30 November.The finalist schools will be involved in a two-day theatre workshop designed and delivered by Manchester Metropolitan University. The workshop will focus on vital components such as, interpretation of script, interpretation of character, voice articulation, stage awareness, use of props, improvisation.

The finals will be held in Kolkata on 1 and 2 December 2012. Seven shortlisted schools will perform at the national finals in Kolkata.

In mid-2013, three individual winners will travel to the UK on an all-expense paid trip to attend a week-long theatre course. There will be individual prizes for best actor male and female and best teacher coordinator.
