Tver Theater for Young Spectators opened in 1932. Three years later, the theater was presented with its own house. From that moment his story began. The leadership and composition of the troupe have changed many times during this time, but the theater has retained its individuality so far, it is recognizable thanks to its productions. The viewer, who has visited the performance at least once, feels the special atmosphere of the flight of creative thought, freedom, courage.

The repertoire of the Tver Theater for Young Spectators is based on children's and teenage literature. Children and young men love to watch the performances of "The Little Mermaid", "Peter Pan", "ProEmelyu", "Elena the Wise". There is also a place for adult productions with classical plots based on the works of Gogol, Bulgakov. The play "… Forget Herostratus!".


The stage director Ansar Khalilullin staged the play "Undergrowth" based on Fonvizin's comedy. They opened the theater season 2009-2010. This complex piece of the classics sounded not old-fashioned, but, on the contrary, modern: it combines sadness and laughter with instructiveness and thoughtfulness.

At the beginning of 2010, A. M. Kove became the chief director of the theater. His last production in 2009, after which he immediately got a position, was the play-parable "Of Mice and Men" by J. Steinbeck.

Blue Arrow

Tver Youth Theater January 2, 2019 presented to the public a performance for children "Journey" Bluearrows"" based on the fairy tale by Gianni Rodari. The project was created under the direction of director Andrey Gorbaty. With the actors of the Tver Theater for Young Spectators, he works for the first time. Carefully watching the progress of the rehearsals, he sometimes cannot restrain strong emotions and himself goes to the stage. After all, as he himself says, he feels happiness when he becomes one of the heroes of a fairy tale beloved since childhood. Rodari is a wonderful author, so his work is wonderful to work with. This is good literature that allows you to talk to children on serious topics without fear. Therefore, I like the material.

The set was designed by artist Vladimir Yakunin, also from St. Petersburg. Costumes for the toy team were made by local craftswomen. They took a lot of gabardine, velveteen and taffeta. The performance has interesting and amazing music, written in rock style especially for it. She goes straight to the heart of the viewer, leaving no one indifferent.

Blue Arrow Highlights

The performance-adventure is suitable for audiences of all ages. Justice, selflessness and true friendship are the main themes of this funny and at the same time touching story. Lively, without notes of edification and morality, the language teaches children tolerance and understanding of the importance of forgiveness.

After a successful premiere, this performance entered the repertoire of the theater for young spectators.

Christmas tree in an adult way

The Tver Youth Theatre's repertoire has been replenished with a new performance intended for an adult audience. itthe unique New Year's performance was not particularly advertised this year, but it was impossible to get tickets even a month before the start of the performance. Viewers of last year's show advertised it so much that tickets were bought in rows. A small champagne buffet was organized in the lobby, which was served to all visitors to cheer up.

The performance lasts four hours. It's hard to say what genre it belongs to. You can see in it the features of a skit, parodies, talk shows - all together they are very organic and create a festive mood. "Christmas tree in an adult way" is not an ordinary performance: it is based not on a script in its traditional sense, but on improvisation. Therefore, it is difficult for viewers to understand whether the action is going according to a pre-planned plan or the situation is out of control. But it also keeps the audience in suspense.

What is the improvisation performance about

The first act is similar to the program "SpotlightParisHilton". Three actors in the form of famous women from classical productions are riding a train and discussing the events of the past year, making plans for the future, and sharing news. They are served by a conductor: she treats them with tea with the aroma of cognac. The company jokes all the time. The plot revolves around rumors and recognizable people of Tver - this is the point of the program. Here everything is familiar and everyone is their own, so the audience has an incredible return. The characters on the stage meet the guests, who are also included in the process of improvisation. For example, Mikhail Borisov from "Russian Lotto" draws prizes and gives them with his own hands.

The program devotes a lot of time to communicating with the audience,who dance, express their opinion about what they see, portray heroes from classical works, receive gifts.

In the second part, a brass band in red caps performs stylized compositions in different genres. The band's singer starts with jazz, then moves on to Russian rock - this is how the skit begins.

The action ended with the song of the actor of the Tver Theater for Young Spectators "I stay", which was picked up by the dancing co-hosts. It seems that this composition is the meaning of the whole show.

"Christmas tree in an adult way" convinces the audience that it is possible to live in Tver, in addition, to create something extraordinary, to communicate with interesting people. It's easy to be stylish, fun and modern here. All it takes is a little bit of creative audacity and the ability to connect.

Many are pleased with the traditional interior design. The buffet, for example, is made inunusual fairy-tale style and creates a pleasant atmosphere. The toilet is clean and the plumbing works well. Made a quality repair.

In the Youth Theater of Tver, the repertoire is designed for different age categories: there are performances for children, adolescents and youth, which cannot but rejoice. It's nice that the actors do not use microphones: after all, the "live" sound is perceived much better. The audience expresses their gratitude to the actors of the theater, as well as to the management, since it became possible to buy electronic tickets. I was pleasantly surprised by the prices for them.
