“If you take a child to the theater, not only will they practice empathy, they might also laugh

uproariously, or come home singing about science, or want to know more about history, or tell you

what happened at school today, or spend all dinner discussing music, or learn how to handle conflict,

or start becoming future patron of the arts” 

- Lauren Gunderson 



Philosophy: Theatre is a safe space to express emotions in a healthy manner. Theatre not only teaches the value of art,

it also inculcates the qualities of empathy, better understanding of values & morals and the ability to communicate better. 

We believe, children’s theatre is no child’s play. 



Play : Whose Apple is it... Anyway

Using a combination of Puppetry and Live actors, this childrens’ play speaks about peaceful co-existence of all beings, in the backdrop of a Vikram-Betaal story.  

 Three self-entitled living beings - a cockroach, a four-legged carnivore and a two—legged omnivore also known as a human being,

fight for a mysterious apple that appears out of nowhere. Each claims that the apple belongs to them.

A strange being that looks like an alien stumbles into this situation and is made the judge as each of them present their case for owning the apple. The strange being makes a judgement that leaves them open-mouthed and red-faced.  

A metaphorical play about how the earth tolerates the selfishness of its inhabitants, it makes children AND adults

question whether the earth and its resources belong to us. It encourages children to think about the virtue of giving versus a mindset of entitlement.
