BLT’s annual big bang production is back! It is brought to you in partnership with Indian Cancer Society (ICS) and Amar Chitra Katha and The Hindu.
BLT & ICS are pleased to announce its partnership with Amar Chitra Katha and The Hindu. This year we present the endearing family entertainer Maya Bazaar. Based on the eponymous movie from the 1950’s, BLT’s version is in English and is a contemporary retelling of the classic yarn. How does Abhimanyu win the hand of Sashirekha, the love of his life, with some help from Ghatothkacha and his merry rakshasas and from Krishna, the original magician? Set in the mystical environs of Dandakaranya and Dwaraka, this play is our tribute to the original and is sure to tickle your funny bone.
We will be performing the play – “Maya Bazaar”, across auditoriums in Bangalore so that people can come and watch the play and also contribute to a worthy cause. Indian Cancer Society intends to use all proceeds from ticket sales to create a bridge fund that would be used to fund diagnosis / initial treatment for children under 18 years. Many parents do not have the required finances, and it takes one or two months to get money from cancer treatment funding schemes. Most cancers can be cured if treatment is started early, especially with children. The bridge fund will provide financial support till main treatment funds are available. ICS and BLT are also conducting anti-smoking workshops, using theatre as a medium, in most schools that will participate in this fund-raiser.
BLT’s Children’s Theatre programme is committed to the disadvantaged child, and is supported by Susmita and Subroto Bagchi as part of our shared social development goals.
ICS’ initiative to create cancer awareness in schools (specifically related to use of tobacco) and to raise funds for initial diagnosis / treatment of children with cancer is supported by Oracle.
