for practitioners small

Drama School Mumbai

As part of our mission to transform the theatre sector, we founded Drama School Mumbai in 2013. From it, a new generation of actors, directors, and producers are emerging, all of whom have been trained by some of India’s finest theatre practitioners. The DSM graduates are already making their presence felt in significant ways. We are extremely proud of our students and alumni, and celebrate their successes during their journey with us and beyond.   

Drama School Mumbai has been made possible, with logistical, financial and administrative support from Theatre Professionals, venue support from Mumbai Marathi Sahitya Sangh, and most importantly pedagogical support from an amazing collective of highly experienced and trained faculty who strive to turn this into an institution of teaching excellence. Our relationship with Drama School Mumbai will always be symbiotic. We are enriched by the knowledge and expertise provided by the leading theatre practitioners it attracts.

We in turn are committed to nurture and support Drama School Mumbai and see it grow into a 2 year program.
