The 127-year-old city-based Surabhi theatre group has been invited to perform at the International Festival of Metz in Paris in May, the Alliance Francaise announced here on Friday. The theatre group, run by 65 members of the same family, is also known as Sri Venkateshwara Natya Mandali.
The group will be staging ‘Maya Bazaar’, a traditional Telugu play, at the Public Gardens in Nampally on Saturday at 5.30 p.m. This would be a fund raiser prior to their tour to France. Donor passes are available at the Alliance Française at Road No.3, Banjara Hills and at the venue before the show. For details, call 23554485 or email ‘firstname.lastname@example.org’.
