About Radhika Creations
A house that has taken birth through the incredible imagination of child artists. A home for those children who want to create their world of free imagination and dwell in it. Where they learn to act in drama, create drama and perform. Radhika Creations has been active in Pune since 7+ years and in Nagpur since 12+ years. This organisation is dedicated to theatre training for children, children’s theatre performances and has regularly entertained families. Children apply various skills like dance, music, art, sports while performing on stage. Our vision is to make future actors available to the industry, enable all round personality development, increased confidence, mental strength & patience, awaken a spirit of oneness, teamwork, selfless service and patriotism in children. We are dedicated to the spiritual, social, familial and educational development of children.
A short note of work we did last 2 years 2020-2022
We have been strong even during pandemic period as well, we did online 30 workshops in 18 months with more than 300 participants and did around 40 shows online entertaining people from our home audience sitting from their home. Performances ranging from one act children’s plays to a 90 min show called “Siyavar Ramchandra Kee Jai”, a first of its kind show where Ramayan was performed by 36 child artists online.
