First production: Thirty-five children will present ‘Arabian Nightmares’ in Bangalore on June 8.

BANGALORE: The United Arts Society (UAS), a voluntary ensemble of artistes promoting art, is all set to stage a musical titled “Arabian Nightmares,” as part of its workshop — “Young World Forum” — for children between eight and 14.

This is the society’s first production. The musical will be performed by 35 children who have been trained in the four-month workshop.

Addressing presspersons here on Wednesday, UAS trustee Deepti Agrawal said that the musical was aimed at showcasing the talents of those trained in the workshop.

UAS is a non-governmental organisation, and the brainchild of a group of young and enterprising individuals. It was formed with the aim of bringing art, the artist and the consumer under a single umbrella.

Revitalising art forms

“We are trying to revitalise the art forms. Though the country is home to several art forms, the average Indian knows very little about them. We are trying to make people aware of the different arts forms by involving children. We introduced the children to nearly 150 art forms in the workshop.”

The UAS conducts a variety of workshops. Besides, “Young World Forum”, it also conducts a workshop for teenagers called “Spectrum”.

Ms. Agarwal said, “For those young at heart, we conduct a programme called ‘Our Age’. Each programme is specially designed to suit the respective needs of the age group in focus,” she said.

The musical, which is directed by Siddhanth K.S. and scripted by Priyanka Das Gupta, will be staged at the Chowdiah Memorial Hall on June 8 at 3.30 p.m. and 7 p.m.

Tickets are priced at Rs. 200, Rs. 300 and Rs. 500, and are available at Gangaram Book Store, Crossword and Landmark. For details, call 9986074986.
