The Kala Ghoda Children’s Literature Festival 2014 – Day 1

Like last year, I’m volunteering for the Kala Ghoda Children’s Literature Festival. And like last year, this year’s fest began with a play staged by Gillo Theatre Repertory. The book they decided to adapt was Catch That Crocodile! by Anushka Ravishankar. It tells the tale of a crocodile loose in the village and several villagers’ failed attempts at getting rid of him. 

And judging by the amount of fun both kids and parents (not to mention us organisers!) had, it turned out to be a hit.

All the actors were brilliant.

Their antics had the kids gasping and giggling at all the right places.

photo 9The setting of the recently refurbished gardens at the David Sassoon Library was equally brilliant.

photo 6Since I was busy manning the desk outside, I managed to miss key elements of the play. (None of these photographs have been clicked by me.)

But the bits that I did catch were bucketloads of fun.
