Lanka Children’s and Youth Theatre Foundation (LCYTF) or popularly known as ‘Somalatha Subasinghe Play House’ commences its next session of ‘Creative Activities for Children’ program on 7 September.  

The program is open to children from ages four to 14. The prime objective of the program is to develop the child’s mental stability and physical senses, to boost their artistic taste, and to keep alive the natural cheerfulness and playful sense of the child through aesthetic experiences.  Therefore, this program can be considered as an extracurricular learning that supplements the formal education the child obtains in school. The program gives the child the opportunity to learn the basics of enjoying and appreciating music, free movements, dance and rhythmic movements, acting and language, art, singing, puppetry and handwork. 

The program is conducted by Dr. Chandana Aluthge, an Artistic Director of Somalatha Subasinghe Play House.  Founded by the Late Somalatha Subasinghe in 1981, Lanka Children’s and Youth Theatre Foundation promotes theatre productions and performances meant specifically for children and youth. Among its many functions is the training of actors, and research on theatre studies. 

This program is conducted on Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 11:30 p.m. at Battaramulla Lion’s Club Activity Centre situated in Jayanthipura main road. The details of the program is available on www.playhousekotte.org, and FB/playhousekotte.org. Details can also be obtained from the telephone number 075 9858001 or 011 2863306. Joining the program will be on 7 September at 9 a.m. at the venue.
