By Staff Reporter

GUWAHATI, Jan 7 - The five-day National Children�s Theatre Festival concluded this evening at the Rabindra Bhawan here. The festival received tremendous response and support from children as well as their parents, said the organisers in a press release.

Theatre groups from various parts of the country, including West Bengal, Manipur and Karnataka, took part in the festival. Altogether ten plays were staged during the festival.

On Wednesday Governor PB Acharya enjoyed a Manipuri play. The Governor lauded the efforts of the organisers to create a favourable cultural ambience for the children.

In keeping with the festival, the organisers also organised a workshop. The Guwahati Shishu Natya Vidyalaya has been organising this festival since 2012.

On the last day of the festival, city-based Badungduppa group staged Bornomala, which is based on the story of a boy who loves to play with his mates, against objections from his father. The play ended with the realisation dawning on the father that he was wrong.
