Wings for Young Adults

The Academy holds classes for young adults as well as for children. While classes are held throughout the year for children and focus on holistic development of the child’s personality, Wings for Young Adults is more acting and production oriented. Every year, the Academy selects 25-30 actors in the age group of 18 to 30 years, who undergo a month long intense theatre workshop, before starting work on a full fledged production. Barring a few students, who have been working with Wings for over a decade now, most of the selected actors are first timers from different walks of life.

Wings for Children

Wings is the only Academy to regularly hold theatre classes for children throughout the year since its inception in the year 2012. Students in the age group of 8 years to 17 years are divided into several batches with curriculums divided according to its suitability for every age group. Every session has two phases that last nine and three months. In the first nine months, the emphasis is on the holistic development of a child’s personality by exploring the techniques of drama and acting. During this time, we work on voice, speech, facial muscles, muscles of the eyes, expression through the body, stimulating creativity through theatre games, improvisations and exercises.

About Wings
Theatre Academy

Wings Theatre Academy was established in the year 2012 in association with St Kabir Public School. The Academy was started to provide a platform to students from Chandigarh and nearby cities, where they could explore and express their creative talent, find stimulation for their imagination and enhance the faculties of their mind, body and the senses. Wings currently has more than 150 students enrolled with it, in the age group from 7 years to 30 years.

Zubin Mehta

Zubin Mehta started his journey in theatre as a child actor. He performed in his first play at the age of 8, staged by a Punjabi theatre group. He thereafter continued to work as a child artist with several Punjabi and Hindi amateur theatre groups, gradually transitioning to full-fledged adult roles at the age of 17.

Throughout the course of his work as a child actor, he took keen interest in the craft of acting, directing and the aesthetics of staging a production. This interest culminated with him directing his first grand musical called ‘The Tinderbox’ for Yadavindra Public School, Mohali at the age of 19.
