Rangaprabhat is a living monument to a master craft man and his disciple in Theatre who dreamt of a Children’s Theatre for the holistic development of children through a conscious weaving of education and arts. The master is Prof. G. Sankara Pillai and the disciple is Guru Kochunarayana Pillai. Their association led to the blossoming of India’s first community oriented children’s theatre at a village called Alumthara, 25 kilometres north of Thiruvananthapuram city, Kerala’s capital. Began as a small experiment in story telling the initiative gradually grew into a Centre for dedicated experiments in children’s education through arts.

Prof.G.Sankara Pillai rose to eminence as an authentic experimenter and creative reformer in Malayalam Theatre besides influencing contemporary Indian Theatre considerably. There emerged soon what is known as Sankara Pillai Style in Indian Theatre and he became a prophet of the Malayalam Theatre.

  The greatest privilege in my life is that I came in to contact with one of the noblest creations of god, Prof. G.Sankara Pillai, who was the doyen of Malayalam Theatre. He and I gradually developed a ‘guru-shishya’ (Mentor-Disciple) relationship and the Rangaprabhath Children’s Theatre which we co-founded in 1970 is the realization of our dream-----
