Are you under 25? Are you interested in the performing arts?
Welcome to Thespo! If your answer for either of the questions is 'Yes!', you've come just to the right place. Thespo is a youth theatre movement with year round workshops, collaborations, curated plays, a bimonthly e-zine and finally, a week full of fun, theatre and more at our annual Youth Theatre Festival.
After an amazing 19th edition of Thespo last December, Thespo is all set to recruit for the next team to lead the movement. Thespo is looking at fresh graduates/under 25 year olds (obviously) with some experience in events or the skills to lead a movement!

The festival (which happens in December, every year) features full length plays, platform performances, fringe performances and live music too. There's also all day activities like diverse workshops, theatre games, readings and even a museum! With exciting stuff to do all day, we promise you a week loaded with theatre.
Full Length Plays
After many weeks of travelling around the country watching every piece of youth theatre we could get our hands on, we have 4 plays from different corners of the country, bringing their A game to the Prithvi Stage. With our plays from Delhi, Lucknow, Ahmednagar, and Bombay, we’re so excited to see what new writing the youth of India have in store for us! Students discounts available at the Prithvi Theatre Box Office.
A space for alternative theatre in Prithvi’s black-box venue, Prithvi House, gives you the opportunity to get up close and personal with a theatre performance hardly a few feet away from you! Not only the performers who registered for Thespo, we also have two curated performances - one directed by a Brazilian theatre-maker, starring local talent, and another created entirely online! The future is now. Best of all: the shows are free.
Site specific work, fresh texts, and the cool wind from Juhu Beach. What more do you need?! The platform performances in the foyer of the Prithvi Theatre are free, and a great way to catch a breath of fresh air while you get your theatre fill!
Live Music Gigs
Who says theatre folk don’t know how to hold a tune? The live music section brings some foot-tapping symphonies to the rest of the festival. A great place to make new friends!
All the World’s a Stage, sure, but all the world’s also a school! Thespo brings to you a range of workshops, for actors, directors, scriptwriters, production managers and even for those looking to upgrade their tech-theatre skills! At rates like this, you’ll be here every day.
