“The chance to work with the likes of Anamika Haksar Sankar Venkateswaran would never have been possible if it weren’t for Theatre Professionals. I cannot think of any other theatre centric teaching facility in the city that is as consistent and reliable in terms of professional practitioners and quality of work.

The workshops and especially IDP helped me keep in touch with the craft and sharpen my tools as an actor. In a busy city we often forget the value of Riyaaz, of keeping the body in regular practice, and Theatre Professionals gave me the chance to do that.I also feel there is an immediate need for a theatre school in Mumbai, as most of our acting schools only focus on Bollywood and film and look forward to Theatre Professionals evolving into the kind of drama school that trains actors for the stage.”
