Mainstream Theater
Mainstream theater is the most part kept to topics that are not religious; it is performed in the common or profane circles. In these are Shumang lila and Phampak lila (arrange show). Shumang lila is famous. Etymologically Shumang lila is the mix of "Shumang" (yard) and "Lila" (play or execution). It is performed in a region of 13×13 ft in the focal point of any open space, in a basic style without a raised stage, set structure, or overwhelming props, for example, window ornaments, foundation view, and special visualizations. It utilizes one table and two seats, kept on one side of the execution space. Its case as the "theater of the majority" is underlined by the manner in which it is performed amidst a crowd of people that encompasses it, abandoning one section as passageway and exit.[citation needed] The universe of Phampak lila (organize dramatization) performed in the proscenium theater is comparative, in structure, toward the Western showy model and Indian Natyasastra display however its substance are indigenous. The purported present day theater slid on Manipur theater culture with the execution of Pravas Milan (1902) under the eager support of Sir Churchand Maharaj (1891– 1941). The pace of showy development was adapted with the organization of gatherings, for example, Manipur Dramatic Union (MDU) (1930), Arian Theater (1935), Chitrangada Natya Mandir (1936), Society Theater (1937), Rupmahal (1942), Cosmopolitan Dramatic Union (1968), and the Chorus Repertory Theater of Ratan Thiyam (1976).[citation needed] These gatherings began trying different things with kinds of plays separated from chronicled and pauranic ones. Today Manipur theater is very much regarded on account of astounding creations appeared in India and abroad. Manipur plays, both Shumang lila and organize lila, have been a standard component in the yearly celebration of the National School of Drama, New Delhi.[citation needed]

Shumang Lila
Each Manipuri (especially among Meiteis) wants to see 'Shumang Lila' in light of the fact that it is the most sweltering among the performing specialties of the state. In any case, it is likewise mainstream among different networks like Meitei Pangal (Muslim), Tribal people group and so on. Whenever 'Titanic', the blockbuster motion picture from Hollywood cleared everywhere throughout the world, it couldn't move an inch of gatherings of people of 'Keishamthong Thoibi', a blockbuster shumang lila. It achieved about 500 shows. Around two thousand onlookers accumulated in a show be that as it may, it fluctuated from patio to yard as indicated by the span of the patio. A scene from 'Keishamthong Thoibi'. Shumang lila formally was recorded without precedent for the state in the year 1918 with 'Harischandra' lila. Be that as it may, its idea was begun a lot before amid the rule of ruler Chandrakriti (1851-1886) in jokester structure. A few researchers opined that shumang lila slid from Lai Haraoba, a custom service of satisfying god by men, going up to folklore period. The present type of shumang lila is created between the proscenium theater and the said comedian structure. Movies especially from bollywood affected in the last time frame. Two names Aribam Amubi Sharma and Lairenjam Chaoba merit referencing in the development of shumang lila. The other works of art like Ramlila, Udukhul, Shan Shenba and so on had added to its nursery period. 'Shumang' signifies 'open yard' and 'lila' signifies play and exacting significance of Shumang lila is "play of the open patio". It has proclivity with proscenium theater in structure anyway it is performed in an open yard encompassed by observers on each of the four sides. Additionally, male artistes act in the female job. A portion of the male artistes in the female job are shocking delights and they can win hearts of the gatherings of people effectively. Presently a-days shumang lila has two sorts - 1) Nupa Shurnang lila, performed just by male artistes; ii) Nupi Shumang lila, performed just by female artistes. Prior, shumang lila was viewed as just 'Exchange lila' in light of the fact that discoursed ruled the whole part of the shumang lila. Presently, Eshei lila has substituted discourse lila and is viewed as shumang lila. The unmistakable component of the Eshel lila is the music, which assumes a critical job in the shuman lila.Another Lila of Birjit Ngangomba. A portion of the incredible shumang lilas in the historical backdrop of the Shumang lila are - 1) Imphal Babu; 2) Daku Jagat Singh (prior it was named as Epagee Ibungo); 3) Abir Khan; 4) Pocket Mar; 5) Devadas; 6) Hamlet; 7) Keishamthong Thoibi and so on. The above shumang lilas are best cherished by individuals and performed at each alcove and corner of the state (especially in valley territory). A portion of the lines (exchange line) are famous among the general population. An ordinary citizen can without much of a stretch recount a few lines from the above shumang lilas. Presently, shumang lila has crossed the limit of phonetic and social obstructions and introduction picked up to different social orders moreover. A gathering called 'Sanalelbak Nachom Artiestes' gave its execution first time in the historical backdrop of the shumang lila at Meghadoot Open Air Theater on the premises of National School of Drama, New Delhi, with a play 'Meigee Ching (Volcano)' in the year 2000. That was the primary execution of the shumang lila among the non-Manipuri talking gatherings of people. The show was a gigantic achievement and the execution of the artistes effectively won hearts of the first class group of onlookers of the capital of India. Common group of onlookers as well as very qualified commentators valued it. At that point a similar gathering Sanaleibak Nachom Artistes was welcome to particpate to the eleventh Indian Peoples' Theater Association (IPTA) at Thrissur (Kerala) held from January 12 to January 17, 2001. The visit was exceptionally fruitful and it was substantially more than their (Sanalelbak) prior desires. Other than their show at Thrissur's IPTA Conference, they were welcome to perform at some remote regions of the Kerala. They gave 11 appears at Kerala. On their arrival venture they gave exhibitions at Dharwad (Karnataka), Prithivi Theater (Mumbai), IMA corridor (Nagpur) and so on. They were welcome to Orissia and Bihar additionally yet they couldn't satisfy their desires because of overwhelming commitment at home. They gave through and through 24 appears amid the adventure. Finally shumang lila has contacted the International group of onlookers. The prominent Sanaleibak Nachom Artistes was welcome to give its execution at Bolshoi theater at Moscow (Russia). They are prepared for the global groups of onlookers in September, 2001. Like theater and movies, chief is the most critical individual in the shumang lila. He plans a wide range of things appeared on the stage. Presently a-days there is discrete choreographers in some shumang lila gatherings. Hardly any prominent chiefs are Birjit Ngangomba, Wareppa Naba, Niladhaja Khuman and so on. Among them Birjit Ngangomba is the most well known one. Whatever he coordinated has turned into a much looked for after play. It has turned into a matter of pride to be coordinated their plays by Birjit Ngangomba. In any case, he is a theater individual just as a military craftsman. He won best executive numerous a period in the All Manipur Shumang Lila Festival sorted out by Manipur State Kala Academy. He coordinated the blockbuster shw-nang lila 'Keishamthong Thoibi'. Dramatists are likewise essential people in shumang lila. Without their hard work it is hard to create a decent shumang lila. Scarcely any prominent writers are Padmashree G.C. Tongbra, Chana Lukhol, Thangjam Birchand, Rajen Toijamba, Nabakumar, Gunachandra Sharma and so forth. Among them Chana Lukhol is as yet dynamic in this calling. He composed the 'Keishamthong Thoibi'. A portion of the extraordinary shumang lila artistes are - Ayekpam Inakhunba (Devadas shaba or Manihar shaba), Jugeshwar (Cheitei shaba), Tondonbi (Paru shabee), Binod (Daku Jagat Singh shaba), Shamu (Abir Khan shaba), Brajabidhu (Hamlet shaba) and so forth and some more. Here I notice just couple of acquainted with crowds. Shumang lila changes its look as indicated by time and circumstance anyway it remains its gravity with no change for quite a while.
