Discounted Theatre tickets for children from NGO-run centres and special schools in Mumbai

MAKING THEATRE ACCESSIBLE

Gillo is performing the following 4 shows for children, in May, this summer in Mumbai:

FRI 11 MAY, 6.30 pm
SUAR CHALA SPACE KO
in Hindi / for 5 to 12 year age group
at EXPERIMENTAL THEATRE NCPA, Nariman Point

SAT 12 MAY, 6.30 pm
KYUN-KYUN LADKI
in Hindi / for 5 to 12 year age group
at EXPERIMENTAL THEATRE NCPA, Nariman Point

WED 23 MAY, 4 pm & 7 pm
KYUN-KYUN LADKI
in Hindi / for 5 to 12 year age group
at PRITHVI THEATRE, Juhu

Suar Chala Space Ko is a hilarious play about a smelly pig and his friends who travel to outer space! Then a sudden encounter with aliens lands them in a big mess.The story touches upon friendship, adventure, owning up to your mistakes, taking responsibility and of course the “swine flu”!

Kyun-Kyun Ladki is based on Mahashweta Devi’s well known picture-storybook, Why-Why Girl and celebrates the thrill of ‘WHY?’ It is the story of Moyna and at the same time the story of so many children, all who always ask the question ‘Why?’ Performed through dance, movement and live music, the play shows glimpses of their lives and of their minds. 

Gillo would like to offer children from NGOs in Mumbai the opportunity to visit the theatre and watch our plays. We can offer a maximum of 50 seats per show for children from NGOs / Schools for children with special needs. The children will also get a chance to interact with the actors after the show.

The NGO shall be charged a token amount of Rs.25/- per ticket for children. (Actual Price for public is between Rs.200 and Rs.300 per ticket)

We request interested NGOs to let us know if they would like to bring their children to our shows. Please send us details of which show you are interested in and how many tickets are needed. We will then revert to you with a confirmation on the same.

Please also note that:
  • This is offer is only for Registered NGO's within Mumbai city.
  • Tickets for NGOs will be issued by GILLO. Please do not directly contact the Prithvi or NCPA Office.
  • Allottment of tickets shall be on first come first served basis.
  • The NGO must make its own arrangements to bring the children to the theatre and take them back to their homes.
  • Adults accompanying the children shall need to purchase tickets at full rate. 
  • Payment of Rs.25/- per child should be made at latest 2 days before the show, or else the discounted seats may be unavailable.
