Red FM partners Thespo 12, India's premier youth theatre festival

MUMBAI: Red FM, the station for expression, partnered Thespo- India's premier youth theatre festival- in its 12th glorious edition which was held in the month of December in Mumbai. The festival brought together talented youngsters from across India and Red FM was there to promote the festival and capture all the excitement.

Theatre groups from Mumbai and Pune were invited to the Red FM studios by RJ Rohini, a Thespo alumnus herself, on her show Red FM Adda (Mon-Sat 2-5pm), where they presented a snapshot of their plays for the benefit of Red FM listeners. These young actors also lent their dramatic skills and voices to 'Story Teri Meri'- a special segment on Red FM Adda where RJ Rohini presents a problem to her 'Addawallahs' and asks them to provide a solution  Red FM's RJ Neeil conducted a well attended workshop on the art and science of RJing for participants at Prithvi Theatre.

Commenting on the association, Red FM's Nisha Narayanan- Senior VP Projects and Programming, said "We are extremely pleased to have been associated with a festival which celebrates the power of youth and creativity. Red FM's Bajaate Raho! attitude resonates strongly with youngsters and all the young people who were part of Thespo embody that spirit. We tip our hats to the organizers and participants of Thespo 12 who put up an excellent show."

Thespo's founder Mr Quasar Thakore Padamese added "It is rare when a corporate entity supports a cultural festival such as Thespo, not just as a media partner but as an important contributor to the festival.

While in college, RJ Rohini was once a performer at Thespo, so Red FM really understands the link between activities like ours and their benefits in the media world. The RJ Workshop by RJ Neeil was a real highlight of the festival, and provided an intimate interaction for aspiring jocks to be informed about the profession. We hope a stronger partnership with Red FM can be built in the years to come"
