Children are like mirrors; they reflect the actions and words of elders. It’s the imitation factor that makes it easy to mould and empower children through responsible activities. On a mission to mould socially committed citizens, Kidreamz Theatre, who offers the country’s first after-school animation programme for kids, is all set to bring out The Traffic Drama, a digital mode of theatre.
Directed by Anjali Nair, the traffic drama has on board eight young actors. “The basic concept of the play is to induce traffic awareness in young minds,” says Anjali.
The concept The Traffic Drama is based on how every citizen — celebrities, politicians, students and common man - ignores the pits on the road till an unfortunate accident happen. When the little theatre artists performed the play at Bhavan’s School, Elamakkara, last month, they took the stage by storm.
“After getting positive feedback from the audience, we decided to air the play through digital shows, campaigns and traffic rule awareness workshops,” Anjali explains.
The shooting of the play began last month. Since all the actors are busy with school, the rehearsals happen over weekends. The kids are waiting for the Christmas vacations to shoot the drama, which will be released on digital platforms by January.
“Every child is blessed with innate talents and inborn efficiency; we just have to find it and promote them. Our edutainment programmes help empower children and enhance their innate talents. If a child is talented in drawing, writing or doodling, we train them and help them be independent,” says Anjali.
The digital launch of The Traffic Drama will happen in January....
