Season 2021 (the last two plays)


September 5 – 26 | San Jose | Musical in the Park

Buddha

written and directed by Sujit Saraf, produced by Soumya Agastya, music by Nachiketa Yakkundi  
(in Hindi) 
Naatak’s annual musical is set in the sixth century BCE and written entirely in rhyme. The Shakya prince Siddharth leaves his father’s palace, attains enlightenment under a peepal tree to become Buddha, roams the kingdoms of Magadh and Kaushal to persuade the world, and alters the course of human history. The play features an ensemble cast, live music and dance. 

With a giant mural for a set, colorful costumes and imaginative props, the play is a visual treat, and a unique outdoor experience in the shade of lush maple and oak trees.

Can you enjoy this play if you do not speak Hindi? Yes. The text of the music (in English), similar to the libretto for an opera, will be provided during the show. Click to see an example.

run-time: 95 minutes

Proof of vaccination will be required for entry. Children under 7 will not be admitted. For the full list of our COVID precautions, visit our Covid Safety Page.

November 6 – 14 | Palo Alto | Cubberley Theater

The Miser

written by Moliere, adapted and directed by Manish Sabu
(in Hindi, with supertitles in English)
Hilarity ensues when a miser seeks to marry his daughter, his son, and himself on the cheap (obviously). This classic comedy by French playwright Moliere is as fresh today as it was in 1668, when it was staged for the first time.
Children under 7 will not be admitted
