Hi there!

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.

This year we host the 19th edition of the festival. The registrations are already in, and currently a screening panel of two professionals travels across the country to watch a total of 182 performances, curate some outstanding work and bring it to the festival! The best part is - all these plays are made by directors, actors, technicians, crew members and even some writers under the age of 25!

The festival (where we will see you from Dec 18 to 24) 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.

You attend workshops, watch plays, be a Friend of Thespo or even help build the festival! Check out the Volunteer Form and come, join in! We love hosting anybody with an interest in performance art at Thespo!

Theatre Bugs

Theatre Bugs is a community theatre watching program by Thespo to encourage young people to watch more plays and discuss more theatre.

REGISTER NOW (and get a ₹100 discount if you are one of the early 10)!

Friends of Thespo

The purpose of Friends of Thespo is two fold – to raise the basic funds needed to ensure that the Festival can continue to happen year after year and to build a network of Thespo lovers.
