Dramatics Club

The Dramatics Club is a recent addition to the school's expanding list of activities. Although a co-curricular activity and only four years old, the Dramatics Club is an off-shoot and extended activity of English Development Course(EDC), a curricular main stream subject for classes VI upwards. The club helps students realize their creative and histrionic skills through regular dramatic performances in English, the high-point of which is a full scale biennial public theatre production.


‘All the world’s a stage and all men and women are merely players.’ Thus spoke the great Bard of Avon and till today that statement speaks for all theatrical performances ever staged! Thus it was that on Wednesday, the 26 November, Bala Vidya Mandir held the Inter-House English Dramatics and provided a platform for the students to showcase their talents. Students from IX to XI represented their respective houses in the plays enacted.

The event started off with an invocation to the Almighty, after which R. Abhishek, the President of the Dramatic Society of Bala Vidya Mandir, delivered the welcome address and stressed on the need for ‘acting more than winning’. Mr. Srinivasa Raghavan, Prinicipal, Bala Vidya Mandir declared the event open.

The overall theme was Social values. Kailash House had anti-corruption as its theme and the play highlighted the rampant corruption that prevails in our country. Kanchenjunga House enacted a fairy tale on love, success and wealth. It was a cleverly performed play. Neelkanth House took a contemporary theme of bullying as their story line and Nangaparbhat House had the teenage version of ‘A Christmas Carol.’

The judges for this event were eminent theatre personalities Dileep Rangan and Michael Muthu. There were five prizes awarded for individual talent. Harshavardhan Sundareshwar Babu of Kailash won the award for the Best Actor. Tanvee S. Narayani of Neelkanth stirred up the crowd to a frenzy and walked away with the Best Actress Award. Sreyas Urlam of Kanchenjunga bagged the Award for the Best Supporting Actor. Tanya Ramprasad of Kailash was adjudged the Best Director.

The first place was bagged by Kailash, followed by Kanchenjunga, Neelkanth and Nangaparbath.
