Theatre Production by Prachyanat School of Acting and Design

The experience MAY Be integrated into your Additional Info, Resume, or Activity after you send your applications. I understand that most of you probably did not experience a professional theatre performance on professional stage. This would also introduce you to a very significant part of cultural life. You can bring in as many as 5 friends/family-members. The auditorium has a 500 seat capacity so this wont be a problem. Admission is FREE but ask for invitation card (the image is on right-hand side) within 10th January. The image on your left is from "Laljatra", a theatrical procession carried out by the students of Prachyanat School of Acting and Design. Click to see the enlarged image.

(I suspect NONE has started it yet.) Sending a General Research Paper AND a Technical Research Paper will be crucial in securing an Admission and Financial Aid.  Anyone failing to submit PLAN for 2 Research Papers will be Prevented from attending class from 6th January Onwards. Rufiyat's example should be kept in mind.  Financial Aid Papers Review - I will start from 9th January onwards.
