Plan Details

World Theatre Day observed on March 27th since 1962, celebrates the importance of theatre arts as it continues to entertain, teach and change us.

Theatre isn't as polished as film, it's not as solitarily immersive as literature and it's not as convenient as television, but the fact that it’s live seems inescapably to be part of its value.

As a Chinese proverb says "Tell me and I will forget. Show me and I will remember. Involve me and I will understand." Theatre inculcates empathy, discipline, cooperation, spirit of team work and communication skills in students.

Masks being an important theatrical element, impersonates a number of characters. Highly decorated, beautifully painted and interesting designs of masks help to depict a more realistic scenario of a place, whether cultural, social, political, religious or historical.

The theme of this assembly, A Theatrical Showcase: ‘Culture of Masks around the World: Diverse, Dynamic and Dazzling’ focuses to bring to light, the importance of masks in theatre and knowing about different types of masks around the world such as Native American masks, Venetian Carnival masks and many more, through a theatrical showcase,would be an enriching experience for the students.

This plan can be used by schools of any country. The schools can conduct it for a grade or few grades from Class 1 to 10.

The plan has a main manual illustrating the flow of the event along with the description of the scripts/ performances/ activities in detail and also includes all the necessary resources for the assembly.
