The four-and-a-half-hour play to be staged everyday till Nov.18
Mysuru: The State Government has announced a three-day mourning following the passing away of Union Minister of Chemicals and Fertilisers and Parliamentary Affairs Ananth Kumar on Nov.12 and hence, ‘Sri Ramayana Darshanam’ that was to be staged from Nov.14 to 18 at Bhoomigeeta in Rangayana premises, will now be staged from Nov.15.
In a press release, Rangayana Director Bhagirathi Bai Kadam has stated that the play which was to be staged for five days from Nov.14 to 18 has now been reduced to four days and it will be staged from Nov.15 to 18 from 6 pm on all the days.
Those who have purchased tickets for the Nov.14 show can preserve the tickets for Nov.15 show. However, they have been asked to exchange the tickets for change of seat numbers at the Rangayana office, she said.
“It is difficult to add more seats in the theatre as the play is four-and-a-half hours long and more people cannot be accommodated,” she said.
Speaking to Star of Mysore here this morning, she said that since the play is reduced to four days, they would stage the play in Bengaluru on Nov.23 and 24, return to Mysuru and stage a few more shows, the dates for which will be announced later.
