The workshop that kicked-off on June 23 will continue till July 18.

This is for the second time that the university and the NSD have jointly organised the workshop in the State.

The organisers here said the prime objective of the workshop is to promote theatre in the region, and develop the overall personality of the students through games, acting, role-play, drama, dance and music.

"The National School of Drama is organising the workshop for the children here in Sikkim. It is also trying to promote theatre in the region," said Purnima Kharga, an expert on Theatre in Education.

Several college and university students are actively participating in the workshop and believe that such workshops help them a lot to boost their confidence levels.

"This type of workshop is very helpful as it helps to gain confidence. It makes you forward and much more open. Even I have experienced that myself," said Tshering Yonzon, a student of Sikkim University.

Through the programme, the students are made to introspect on the various issues of their daily lives. They are also asked to make presentations of their creative ideas and create scripts. (ANI)
