Permanent theatres for dramas in all panchayats: Minister

Thrissur: The State government has decided to establish permanent theatres for staging plays in all the 978 grama panchayats of the state, Minister for Culture, K C Joseph Saturday said.

Inaugurating the Kerala Sangeetha Nadaka Academy's G Sankara Pillai Cultural Complex here, he said this proposal would go a long way in attracting more people towards the medium of drama and creating an awareness among the people.
