THE SHAKESPEARE SOCIETY

THE SHAKESPEARE SOCIETY


About the Society:

Instituted in 1924, The Shakespeare Society is the oldest collegiate theatre society in India. The society was originally founded with a three-fold objective of producing an annual Shakespearean play, studying Shakespearean drama and observing 23rd April as Shakespeare Day every year. But as the society progressed, its objectives and horizons widened. Today, The Shakespeare Society extends far beyond its titular motif – Shakespeare and stands as one of the most active, creative and skilled collegiate theatre societies. The society’s rich alum base has further shaped and contributed to its growth and expansion.

The society has a riveting annual event calendar including a launch production, an intra and inter-college national level theatre festival which witnesses a participation of 1000+ students, external performances, panel discussions, play-reading sessions, an annual production and a plethora of creative sessions and workshops facilitated by professionals. The society also collaborates with other societies to organize collaborative events and to provide non-competitive spaces for enthusiasts to showcase talent and hone their craft.

The society truly allows young artists and performers to explore their expressive boundaries and equips them with necessary life skills. Being an open society, ShakeSoc as we call it, believes that there is an artist in everyone and the society with its resources provides the perfect breeding ground for nurturing their ability, passion and aesthetics for story-telling. ShakeSoc serves as a platform to engage with all the different elements of theatre – acting, direction, production, scriptwriting, lights & sounds, make-up and costume, and marketing & publicity. The society also encourages political and civil discourse, imagination, empathy, inclusivity, originality and education through art.

What makes The Shakespeare Society particularly unique is that it combines meaningful theatrics with a legacy of excellence. To that effect, the Society has successfully been able to carve out a niche for itself under the umbrella of collegiate theatre and beyond.
