Marionette Theatre is always a wonder for kids, taking them into the imaginary world of talking animals and textile heroes. The Kiev Marionette Theatre is the greatest place of this kind, suitable not only for children but also for tour guests coming with their families, friends or escorts. Being founded by Mikhailo Yaremchuk, the theatre started its work since November 1989. This is quite a small hall with 100 seats but lures more and more tour visitors every day.
If you believe that marionette theatre is created for children only, you might be awfully mistaken, since it performs wonderful plays like all real big theatres, like the famous Cherry Orchard written by one of the greatest writers A. Chekhovi. The actors perform with bright marionettes. By the way, this play got several awards and prizes for its music and scenography.
Being on tour and having no specific plans for the evening, you may visit its over outstanding performance, winners of various awards. It is performed mainly for grown-ups and it s called "The House Which Swift Built". The most distinctive feature of this performance is that actors play together with the marionettes, and this makes a really cool impression. Before going to theatres and museums of Kiev we'd recommend you to hire a professional guide or even a girl from the escorts agency. Escorts in Kiev have good command of English, which means that sometimes you even don't need a guide.
The most beloved plays for kids are "Who Can Wake the Sun", "Little Red Riding Hood", "There was a Rolling Bag" and "Golden Chicken". The theater expects to see family audience as well as kids of 6 and more years old but sometimes there are plays for babies under 6. The theatre is also proud of its every international tour and guest appearance in Europe.
