Our Recording Team

IMG-20150205-WA0020Meet our wonderful recording team. This team was the first lot of students to begin work for the Annual Day – as early as the month of October.

After spending hours and hours of brain storming sessions with Mr Aaroosh Sethi, our programme director, we finally settled on the theme of the annual day and specially the concept and script of both Snow White and Chhoti Si Aasha – which we have already spoken of.

Once the script was ready, Aaroosh went to work. He selected a team of 16 students to train them for recording the dialogues of both the plays.

What followed next was, hours and days and weeks of intense practice sessions wherein the students were given rigorous training in dialogue delivery, voice modulation, correct expression and diction.

The session bore fruit. The children were supremely confident as they entered the recording studio – and they delivered with aplomb.

Tomorrow, 6 February 2015, as you see the fabulous performance of our children, you won’t be able to stop yourself from appreciating the work of the recording team amongst others.

So get ready to sit back and enjoy the audio – visual bonanza of Chhoti Si Aasha.

Working behind the scenes-quietly –is our wonderful prop team. They have put in back breaking hours of meticulous work to make some astoundingly beautiful props and stage properties. Be it the beautiful bejewelled crown of the king and the queen or the cute lanterns of the dwarfs or the wonderful musical instruments of the dancers-it is all a labour of love.
Our craft work maestro Mrs Rekha Karnawat ably assisted by Ms Alafiya Siddiqui, Ms. Tanu Sharma, Ms. Ruchita Goswami and Ms. Avika Kastiya. And of course a special mention of Mr. Raju Kumawat, who not only helped with the props but has also prepared a small team of budding sculptors who are going to make a beautiful sculpture for you live on stage. The young sculptors Siddharth Kothari, Khushi Sharma and Shruti Badaya are ready to surprise you with the deftness of their hands.

 

Chhoti Si Aasha

Chhoti Si Aasha

DSC_0392Chhoti Si Aasha is a hard hitting street play which is connected to the ‘Save the Girl Child’ campaign.

Enough has been said and shown on the plight of the girl child in our country. We are all aware of female foeticide, female infanticide, dowry deaths, girls being dumped in trash cans…………………here we bring this play with a slightly different perspective.

Chhoti Si Aasha explores the reason as to why our society has reached the point where we need to announce campaigns, hold protest marches and pass legislations to save the girl child.

In a country where women are venerated as Goddesses, where non-violence is the mantra given by the ‘Father of Our Nation’ and followed religiously by most religious sects……….how have we stooped down to a level where such a heinous crime is being committed by the common man without any qualms?

Superb direction by Mr Aaroosh Sethi and magnificent performance by our young acting maestros will surely give you goose bumps as we take you through one of the most thought provoking acts of all time.

Come and kindle the hope of a better, well balanced society together with us.

Yehi Hamari Chhoti Si Aasha hai !!

Mobile Mania -Mime

Mobile Mania – Mime

The World has gone crazy with the explosion of smart phones in the market. Mobile phones are no longer a luxury – they have become a necessity. However, it is alarming to see how this tiny instrument has started governing our lives. The cell phone gets you everywhere anytime, any place. Somewhere in this melee we seem to be losing our basic etiquettes and sensitivity towards people and events.

This wonderful satire is surely going to bring a smile on your face and force you to ponder……. how much are you letting technology govern your life and human values? The brilliant act put together by Mr Farmaan Ali and the students of The Palace School will leave you awestruck as you watch with what ease and aplomb the young actors enact such a difficult genre of theatre.
