Everyone in this world is trapped in the trivial tribulations of their lives. Each person is so preoccupied with a million tasks that personal growth and development has become a forgotten path. With the ever increasing stress and lack of relaxation, people are becoming oblivious to their true potential and qualities beyond their daily mundane tasks. Theatre provides a refreshing environment in today’s fast, stressful scenario. It gives space to an individual to grow and develop beyond the restrictions of life. Theatre can be useful for every age group, from childhood to old-age. Childhood is the most interesting phase of everyone’s life. If provided a chance, everyone would want to get back to those carefree days. All of us must have heard the saying:
“I hear – I forget
I see – I remember
I do – I understand”
This applies to everyone, but carries a much deeper meaning for children. Children, who are considered as Tabula Rasa or a blank slate, have extremely impressionable minds. At Thespian, we believe that theatre provides a platform to boost their creativity and potential. Children are inspired, stimulated and are engaged by theatre. It strives to stir the emotions and spark the ability to imagine. Theatre has a magical effect on personality of children. They learn personality grooming and try to become a role model for others.
Thespian Society takes into consideration the needs of young and old, and organizes workshops according to specific requirements of children, adults and older people. These are carried out at locations convenient to them such as schools, workplaces and residential areas respectively. For working adults, theatre proves especially beneficial as it helps channelize their energy towards their personal development. The roles they play on stage can have a positive effect on their own lives, making them more efficient and better team players at work, and good human beings to be around. MNCs, businesses and other corporations, too, can benefit from theatre, as it can be used as a tool for publicity of their products and services. It is more impactful than television or newspaper advertisements as you can reach your target audience better and initiate faster, two-way communication. At Thespian Society, we envision opening the doors of creativity in every heart. Theatre helps change peoples’ perspectives and brings in a source of mutual enjoyment. We hope to inspire more and more individuals to join us and make theatre an inherent part of their lives.
