About the theatre

The church of Zosima and Savvaty Solovetskih was constructed right at the beginning of the 18th century. The exact year of its construction is unknown.

For long our theatre didn’t have its own building and was “a theatre on wheels”. And only in 1966 we got a building similar to a mini-palace or terem restored by the architect V. Banige. 

Care of spectators can be seen everywhere and it starts from the cloak-room. Spectators leaving their clothes there get nicely-painted wooden figures with long laces. Hang the figure on your neck and you won’t lose it!

Children like this part of the theatre very much. They come to the performances beforehand and don’t want to leave the theatre as they enjoy nice plants and funny animals here.

There are nicely-carved balconies along the stairs. Puppets on the balconies are greeting guests of our theatre. Armchairs in the hall can be transformed so that small spectators sit at the same level with adults and can see the stage well from any place in the hall.
