I am trying to achieve a theorem like representation in my beamer presentation as shown.

Currently I am defining a newtheorem env for each such construct in preamble, and then using that, as:

%in preamble
\newtheorem{trial}{A trial}

%in the body
      Just a trial

Can I have a more generic way of achiving this? I mean, I don't want to define 50 \newtheorem in preamble, but still want to have this two coloured construct. Just using theorem will give me a Theorem:trial in the upper part.

    Have you looked in the manual at the block environment? – Loop Space Nov 28 '13 at 12:45

I think you're looking for the block environment from beamer. It's documented in Section 12.3 of the manual (for version 3.31).




\begin{block}{Block Title}
Block body

(Madrid theme to make it more obvious.)

Block in beamer
