It was heartening to see along the railway station road, good-looking posters of something interesting. Especially when you come back home after being away for some days. Not just the posters of Amen, but CHITFOK – a Children’s Theatre Festival.
Scheduled for 13th – 17th April 2013, everyday at 6.30 pm, the festival is organized by our local National Award winner Mr. Joshy Mathew. He has been actively involved with children’s theatre/art/film for long now.
Entry to the event is not restricted but regulated. You can contact Mr. Joshy Mathew to get the free entry tickets (+91 944 705 6416).
Also, tickets will most probably be available at the venue during the event.
Go over to The Hindu for more information and schedule of plays.
