After a successful first run, Gandhi- The Musical is back with its second season and a special show was organized for kids from 12 different NGOs, on Friday, at Jamshed Bhabha Theatre, NCPA, Mumbai.
The kids, who, till now, had just read about the Father of The Nation in their history books, were ecstatic to see the journey of the extraordinary man come alive on stage. Their enthusiasm was quite evident, as they laughed and clapped at Gandhi’s witty one-liners. Even the adults accompanying the kids were mesmerized by the actors’ stunning performances and awe-inspiring dance sequences of the musical.
Children from Bal Anand, Asha Sadan, Bal Jeevan Trust, Salaam Baalak Trust, Salaam Bombay Foundation, SKS Chakshu Foundation, Project Vahana + Wishing Well, Jai Vakeel Foundation, Seva Sadan, STEP, Udaan and V-Connect attended the special screening and post the show, posed for pictures with the play’s cast. Also present at the special screening was ace photographer and film producer Atul Kasbekar along with his family. RJ Glen and RJ Urmin of Fever 104 FM also graced the event.
The second season commenced from April 1 and received an overwhelming response from the audiences. The opening weekend shows saw packed houses and received standing ovations from the patrons.
