LETS ACT- Youth Theatre Drama Festival

The masters in drama gave the youth a platform to showcase their acting skills in Mumbai.

Peter Slade said that ‘education is concerned with individuals, drama is concerned with the individuality of individuals, the uniqueness of each human essence.’

Helen O’Grady International believes that Drama is one of the most important assets to learn in our lives. Drama as an art, contributes to the development of an understanding of the physical, emotional, intellectual, aesthetic, social, moral and spiritual dimensions of human experience. If our nation is to continue to meet the challenges of the future, we need to develop creative and empathetic leaders.

In our endeavour to promote creativity and give a platform to the youth, we organised in Mumbai a theatre festival called “Let’s Act’ in December 2012.

The response was excellent with 22 teams participating in the event. The final three teams went to perform at NCPA in Thespo.

Some eminent personalities were invited to judge the event such as:

  • Quasar Padamsee, Head of Thespo
  • Satyajit Batkal, Director of Satyamev Jayate
  • Ramakrishnan Ramanathan, Indian playwright and Director
  • Vivek Agnihotri, Bollywood film director, producer and screen writer

Daan Utsav

Helen O’ Grady International franchisees across India are involved wholeheartedly in various activities as a part of India’s DaanUtsav (Joy of Giving festival), which is celebrated every year in October. HOGI’s association with DaanUtsav began in 2013 and we haven’t looked back since. The activity “Seva Sandwich”, which involves making sandwiches and distributing them among those less fortunate, is one of many volunteering activities in which HOGI participates.

Besides such activities, HOGI organises events such as Flash Mobs to attract large crowds. Volunteers then spread the message of ‘giving’ among the people who gather, in the form of pamphlets and word of mouth. Banners reading the same message are put up in the background. School children, teachers, parents, and grandparents participate with ample enthusiasm. In 2016, HOGI organised a performance of their popular rendition of Shakespeare’s “The Tempest” at Bhaidas auditorium, Mumbai, to promote DaanUtsav.
