Play House brings creative activities for kids

The newest session of “Creative Activities for Children” programme conducted by the veteran actress, playwright and theatre director Mrs. Somalatha Subasinghe will be held in July 2010.

Organised by Lanka Children’s and Youth Theatre Foundation (LCYTF) or popularly known as Play House-Kotte, the top most institution for children’s and youth theatre productions in Sri Lanka, the programmes aim to develop aesthetic talents of children from ages four to fourteen.

“The prime objective of this programme is to develop the child’s mental and physical aspects and to enhance artistic taste, cheerfulness and playful sense of the child through aesthetic experiences.

Therefore this programme can be considered as an extracurricular learning that supplements the formal education the child obtains in school,” says Mrs. Subasinghe who founded Lanka Children’s and Youth Theatre Foundation in 1981 to promote theatre productions and performances specifically for children and youth, training of actors and actresses and research on theatre studies.

‘The programme gives the child the opportunity to learn the basics of enjoying and appreciating music, free movement, dance and rhythmic movement, acting and language, art, singing, puppetry and handwork,” said Dr. Chandana Aluthge, one of her senior theatre students and a children’s theatre director.

This programme is conducted on Saturdays from 9.30 a.m. to 1.30 p.m. at Janakala Kendra situated near the parliament.

More details could be obtained by sending a stamped envelope to the Coordinator, Lanka Children’s and Youth Theatre Foundation, No. 166/1, Buddhist Institute Avenue, Parliament Road, Kotte 10100. Further details on the programme are available on and also could be obtained on telephone number 011 2863306.
