English / Hindi Play (90 mins)
A musical Play which sensitively handles the tricky subject pf Puberty and Safety in a matter of fact and fun way, aiming to leave the target audience with a very positive attitude towards Puberty. Growing Up is a story about a group of tweens on their exciting journey through adolescence. A frantic search for the clown who is the hero of the growing up book, a strange common dream, Mr. Mistry – their weird teacher, Cool Dadi, Psycho Didi and the case of the missing dog all add to the confusion and fun during this journey down the Puberty lane.As the characters wrestle with the question, “Am I normal?” they learn to cope with the changes affecting their bodies and minds. The play also beautifully addresses the issue of Okay and Not Okay Touch and paves the way for parents to open the doors of communication on this topic.
