Packing a Punch!

Shrishti, an NGO, in association with Parle, presents a children’s musical play called “Punch-a-Tantra” on June 22, 7 p.m., at the Children’s Theatre, Wallajah Road. This production, being brought from Mumbai by Amuse Events, has a scintillating array of costumes and sets. “Punch-a-Tantra” is inspired by the Panchatantra, the Jataka Tales and the Hitopadesha.

It tells the tale of a yuppy father, who feels story telling is a waste of time and energy. But by a quirk of fate, he is drawn into the magical world of stories, where he encounters the talking, dancing and singing animal inhabitants, who impart to him the wisdom of the Punch-a-Tantra.

The funds generated from this event will be used for educating underprivileged children. Besides, funds will be channelled into Shrishti’s existing projects.

Tickets for the show priced at Rs. 250 and Rs. 150 are available at Landmark (Nungambakkam) and Odyssey (Adyar). For details contact 9884830573.
