Making Theatre Accessible

Sub.: Making Theatre Accessible: Tickets for Plays available at discounted rate for NGOs in Mumbai working with children

Dear Friends, 

We at Gillo would like to make our shows accessible for children who otherwise do not get to experience theatre performances, including children from lower economic backgrounds and children with different abilities.

Under our initiative of Making Theatre Accessible, we are once again offering discounted tickets this summer to NGOs in Mumbai working with children.

Gillo is offering seats at Rs. 25 per ticket to children from NGOs in Mumbai. (Ticket prices are between Rs.150 and Rs.300)
These tickets are available on a first-come first-served basis and for LIMITED SEATS as follows:

Play 'Taoos Chaman Ki Myna'
at 11 am on Sun. 27th April 2014 
at Bhavan's Auditorium, Chowpatty.
Maximum 50 seats per NGO.

Play 'Double bill of Mister Jeejeebhoy... and Catch That Crocodile' 
at 6.30 pm on Sat 17th May 2014 
at NCPA, Nariman Point
Maximum 20 seats per NGO.

Play 'Double bill of Mister Jeejeebhoy... and Catch That Crocodile' 
at 12 noon and 4 pm on Tue 3rd and Wed 4th June 2014 
at Prithvi Theatre, Juhu. 
Maximum 20 seats per NGO.

Play 'She-He-Shey'

Visit http://gillogilehri.blogspot.in/2014/03/shows-in-summer-2014-in-mumbai.html for more details (such as language, age group, etc.) and choose accordingly.

To book tickets, please send an email to gillo.gilehri@gmail.com with details (name, address and contact of NGO, number of children, age group, name of play, date and time of show you would like to see).

Interested NGOs must avail of the discounted tickets (including payment) 10 days before the show date. After that only direct bookings at full price will be available. 

[Note: Please DO NOT contact Bhavan's Auditorium or NCPA or Prithvi Theatre or Book My Show directly for discounted tickets]

N.B.
Do also note that:

- Tickets shall be handed over to you one hour before the show at the venue.
Arrangements to bring the children to the theatre and take them back to their homes to be done by the NGO. 
-  You are advised to reach the venue 30 min before the start of the show so that all the children can be seated comfortably before the show starts
- Late entry after the show has started is not permitted, even for a large group, as this is disturbing for the rest of the audience.
- For any adults accompanying the children, tickets will have to be purchased by you directly at the full rate.
