Olio - drama with a twist

Aug 31, 2012, 06:27 IST | Special Features

Have you ever wondered what would happen if you took your favourite fairytales and changed it up a bit?

What if Cinderella was a boy? Or Peter Pan was a 50 year old Chinese man? Or Alladin was a rapper?


Well, you can stop wondering. From ipod using cinderfellas to business-minded little pigs to an evil Pinnochio. St Andrew’s College is all set to take you on a journey through the magical land of fairytales… but this time with a little twist and a lot of spice! Olio, the only inter-collegiate drama competition in Mumbai has everything — inspiring performances, brilliant scriptwriting, ambitious directors to wacky fillers; Olio never seizes to amaze!

Here the future shines
Olio’s not just a competition, but the perfect platform for young talent to discover their true potential, paving the way of future stars. And what better way than in a state of the art auditorium like St. Andrew’s with the best sound and light equipment there is! Not to mention the wise cracking, leg pulling, wittiest, craziest fillers that will have you jumping out of your seats.

All that jazz
Celebrity judges like Genelia Dsouza, Cyrus Brocha, Nikhil Chinappa, Dolly Thakore, Rael Padamsee, Sharon Prabhakar and Milind Soman will add that extra touch of glamour. Year after year, Olio has created fond memories that make the students want to relive the experience. Nowhere else does budding talent get such an opportunity. Having had Freida Pinto win the best actress award in 2004 as a contestant of St. Xaviers, as well as St Andrew’s very own one time best actors Anand Tiwari and Pierre Timmins who have joined Bollywood just proves that Olio truly is the platform where stars are born.

It just gets bigger
This 12th year of Olio will be no different; but will probably get much bigger and better! So sit back, relax and enjoy a spectacular show filled with drama, humour and music... Presenting Olio 2012 — Twisted Tales!
