Summertime Fun in South Mumbai

When the summer holiday begins, it’s time for kids to enjoy. Some children go for long holidays exploring various places and some stay back to join activity class. It is holiday that one likes to spend doing something different. Children love to be with friends and like to get involved in group activities where they can be creative in games, art, craft, dance, theatre and even creative writing.

NCPA creates opportunities for these children creating a fiesta like atmosphere whereby the whole month is dedicated in entertaining them in an informal and non-competitive environment.

The theatre group will come alive with different plays and it will be fun watching the play performed by children.

 is a hilarious play about a smelly pig and his friends who travel to outer space! Then a sudden encounter with aliens lands them in a big mess. The story touches upon friendship, adventure, owning up to your mistakes, taking responsibility and of course the ‘swine flu’!

Kyun kyun ladki-This play is based on Mahashweta Devi’s well known picture-storybook: Why-Why Girl, and celebrates the thrill of ‘WHY?’ It is the story of Moyna and at the same time the story of so many children who always ask the question ‘Why?’ Performed through dance, movement and live music, the play shows glimpses of their lives and of their minds.

Jungle Book - In this action-packed adaptation of the classic adventure story, precocious Mowgli grows up believing he's a fierce wolf. When he learns he is actually a human, he must discover how to reconcile these very different identities, and decide whether to remain with the pack, or return to the human world, where he was born. What will he choose?

Snowwhite the naughty elves - Based on the fairytale Snow White & The Seven Dwarves, this play is performed with hilarious, unique twists and turns in the storyline. In the classic story the Prince and the princess are our stars. In this version the elves and their antics rule...from performing silly dances to staging a rock concert to kidnapping a reluctant prince, the elves leave the audience wanting more! Comedy for kids at its best!

Laal Pencil- A young school girl is relishing her new found stardom amongst peers and teachers ever since she suddenly, mysteriously started writing beautiful poetry. She wins accolades and respect owing to her new 'talent' not just in her own class but in the whole school. What no one knows is that it is not her, but a magic red pencil that she found in class that's writing the poetry. The constant struggle between truth and falsehood, desires and righteousness, love and hate, and the pain of keeping a secret, lead up to the girl's final decision. Will she or won't she? Based on a Korean novel, 'laal pencil' is a poignant tale of a girl with a secret.

Listen to me Please - in today’s world, parents as well as children are both caught in a dilemma. Parents feel that children spend too much time on the computer & with other electronic gadgets, which are slowly taking them away from reality. On the other hand, children argue that if they are not tech-savvy, they may get “left behind”. The play addresses this problem & tries to bridge the ‘great divide’!  

Zinga Zinga Roses - Zinga's Planet Sesor gets invaded by the evil Yago and his army. The invaders are on the hunt for the immortal Rose of Sesor. Little Zinga manages to escape with the prized rose. Will Yago be able to find Zinga and the rose? Follow Zinga and his friend Pi in a series of adventures where we meet the gardener ha chi, a girl called Gulab, an artist called Manet, politician Rosa Golla and many more characters in this delighful tale of Zinga Zinga Roses.
