This is a typical buzzing theatre workshop conducted by the National School of Drama. Children are seen rehearsing roles  of characters from Tagore’s work. The plays produced at workshop will be showcased in the Capital from June 18 to 23.

During the workshop three productions are prepared based on the plays of Gurudev Rabindranath Tagore as a small tribute on his 158th birth anniversary.

Theatre allows expressing yourself and gives you that confidence. It also improves the sense to visualise the world creatively, which helps to sharpen the skills, say experts.
