GROWING UP - PLAY
‘GROWING UP’ is a highly entertaining musical Play on Puberty & Safety, which sensitively handles a tricky subject in a matter of fact and fun way, aiming to leave the target audience with a very positive attitude towards Puberty.
The play also beautifully addresses the issue of ‘okay and not okay’ touch.
Right information at the right age in the right manner is the key to well-adjusted kids with a very positive and responsible attitude. GROWING UP is a step in that direction.
The play is for 9+ audiences, but it will keep adults riveted and entranced, making them wish there had been a ‘GROWING UP’ when they were growing up! It also paves the way for parents to open the doors of communication on this topic.
It is a 1 hour 15 minute Play and the actors are all young adults.
A PEEK INTO THE STORY
‘Growing Up’ is a story about a group of tweens on their exciting journey through adolescence. They all are going through various physical and emotional changes and are confused. The ‘Growing up' book can help ease their confusion, but the evil frog has cursed Kuku, the Clown, who is the hero of the Growing up book and thus all pages of the book have become blank. A frantic search for the Clown, a strange common dream, Mr. Mistry – their weird teacher, Cool Dadi, Psycho Didi and the case of the missing dog all add to the confusion and fun during this journey down the Puberty lane. As the characters wrestle with the question, “Am I normal?” they learn to cope with the changes affecting their bodies and minds while learning to keep themselves safe.
