NASHIK: After the second wave of Corona, drama theaters in the state were reopened on 22nd October. Before this, except a few days in between, the drama theaters were closed over a year and a half period. But after the lifting of the ban on theaters, the artists and theatrical organisations have started working with enthusiasm.
The Directorate of Cultural Affairs of the State government has announced that the State Children’s Drama Competition will start from 1st February 2022, and the 60th Marathi Amateur State Drama Competition will start from 1st January 2022.
