NSD - Sikkim Theatre Training Centre
Sikkim Theatre Training Centre is the first outside Delhi centre of the National School of Drama. Situated in a lush green picturesque valley of Gangtok, the Centre imparts year-long extensive training in theatre.
The first phase of the course is devoted to training & grooming of the participants in which Yoga, Movement, Martial Arts, Voice & Speech, Music, Western drama, Classical and Modern Indian Drama and various methods of Acting are covered. The Second Phase focuses on Technical training, Scenic Design, Lighting, Make-up and other aspects of theatre. Whereas in the third phase, the participants experience a series of professional tours in and around Sikkim and other places of India which provide them ample opportunities to open up and know different cultures, peoples & territories.
In 2012, the Centre has started its Repertory Company in which students from the last year’s training programme were selected as artists.
