“To be creative means to be in love with life. You can be creative only if you love life enough that you want to enhance its beauty, you want to bring a little more music to it, a little more poetry to it, a little more dance to it.”
Vaudeville is an intercollegiate fest organized by the CMR Institute of Management Studies and which takes place every alternate year. It is a platform offered by CMR IMS to encourage talent in various areas and to promote healthy and friendly competition. This year’s fest hinged on the theme “Fantasy”. The theme was chosen to allow creativity and ingenuity to unfold and bloom unhindered.
The events of Vaudeville 2017 were divided in various categories – Indian, western, virtual, creative and communication; these were to ensure maximum participation. Talents were showcased through events such as theme dances, solo singing, mime, beat boxing, standup comedy and treasure hunt gaming. It was a day filled with fun and challenges for the participants.
