About Drama School Mumbai
Drama School Mumbai was founded in 2013 to forge a new generation of theatre-makers; actor-creator-entrepreneurs professionally trained to perform and create work to a higher global standard of storytelling. Our alumni are all highly active, founding theatre groups, acting in award-winning plays, working in films as well as applying their craft in education and corporate-training.
We work with a faculty comprising of the best theatre practitioners, actors, playwrights, directors, theatre designers and producers.
Armed with fundamental skills in performance, direction and producing, our graduates embark on making their own livings and careers in the theatrical arts, contributing to a gradual development of the sector with work that aims to be of a higher standard for all audiences.
Drama School Mumbai also works to promote the awareness of theatre and its processes to a wider audience interested in exploring and understanding the medium for themselves through shorter workshops, lectures, and regular presentations of work created by the students and faculty.

Post Graduate Certificate Course
“Drama School Mumbai helped me gather myself and become more self-aware. As actors, we often carry a “bag of tricks” that DSM helped me identify and break. It helped me become a better listener, be more disciplined in life, and it also gave me an opportunity to be trained with the best theatre-makers in the country.”
“I fell in love with theatre, because it made me experience magic. But what became very apparent, not long after joining the school, was that training is essential to make that magic consistent. Drama School Mumbai gave me the perfect foundation for my career in acting and theatre-making.”
Niharika Lyra Dutt
“Drama School Mumbai is an institution that not only shaped me as an actor and theatre practitioner but also gave me the vision to make my own choices in my life as a human being. It gave me the courage to create my work from scratch, and as a performer today I have my toolkit with which I can create, and experiment with my work. This gave me the most satisfying feeling!
The vision of ‘Drama School Mumbai’ is true to itself because of the faculty, the curriculum and the idea behind the foundation of this institution.”
