The availability of two rent-free well-equipped modern stages along with essential paraphernalia, like lighting gear for special effects, stand-by generator, good sound systems, enough chairs and adequate space to accommodate a large audience and above all presence of an ample crowd of epicureans keen about the art make Changampuzha Samskarika Kendram the natural choice of drama groups in this part of Kerala. It is no accident, therefore, CSK becomes the venue for a number of stage presentations including natakolsavams every year.
The Changampuzha Natakolsavam in 2008 staged eight top-class plays in as many days. Early in 2009 P.J. Antony Smarak Samithy held a five-day festival.
The Lok Dharmi drama group in Tripunithura led by Prof. Chandradasan and CSK jointly present high quality plays every year,.
In 2008 the Ernakulam Press celebrating its 40th anniversary, in association with the National School of Drama sponsored an 8-day-long drama festival honouring Kavalam Narayana Panicker, doyen of Malayalam drama, on his 80th birthday.
