This World Theatre Day, the National Centre for the Performing Arts (NCPA) is all set to present a spectacular line-up of performances and workshops, specially curated to celebrate the glorious art form. The highlight of the day would be the 'Gala' performance by theatre stalwarts of Mumbai and the proceeds of this event will go towards bursaries for young artistes working in theatre.

The exciting line-up includes short performances by Sumeet Vyas, Anuvab Pal, Kunal Roy Kapoor, Zafar Karachiwala, Jim Sarbh, Priya Mallik, Yuki Ellias, Faezeh Jalali, Srishti Shrivastava, Sunil Shanbag, Savitri Medhatul, Akanksha Kadam and many more.

Commenting on this vibrant line-up, Bruce Guthrie, Head of Theatre and Film, shares, "It has been three years since we were able to celebrate World Theatre Day in person. We are delighted that the NCPA can mark this occasion by welcoming some of the finest talents Mumbai has to offer back to our theatres. Free workshops from QTP and Silly Point, an NT Live Screening of Shakespeare's Romeo & Juliet, and our special Gala performance provide an action-packed day for theatre lovers. We hope that the people of the city will come out to be with us on this special day. All proceeds from the day will go to bursaries for groups, to help them bounce back from the pandemic."

The event includes exciting workshops designed for theatre enthusiasts, completely free of charge. Starting the day on 27th March will be workshops by Silly Point Productions - The SPIT Theory and The Actor as Detective by Quasar Thakore Padamsee. The SPIT Theory workshop will cover the basics of theatre and ultimately imbibe confidence in the child. The second workshop The Actor as Detective will help participants unlock techniques on how to analyse and understand a section of text so that when the words are finally given a 'voice' they are full of meaning and purpose.

With this exciting line-up, NCPA is all set to welcome the theatre-loving audience of the city with the curtains ready to rise.
