Theater art festival announced in Sevastopol
From June 1 to June 7, the city will host the VII All-Russian Festival of theatrical art for children «Fairytale Kingdom», the organizers of the festival announced this at a press conference. The project is being implemented by the Fairytale Kingdom autonomous non-profit organization together with the Sevastopol Theater for Young Spectators with grant support from the Presidential Fund for Cultural Initiatives.
Our festival is 7 years old. During this time, a significant part of our viewers grew up and went to school. It turns out that this year we all sit down at the desks of the Fairytale Kingdom. And they are happy about it. After all, we are not wizards, we are only learning. But we promise you miracles of discoveries and fantastic emotions with confidence— quotes the press service of the director of the Sevastopol Youth Theater Andrey Maimusov.
There will also be an educational program for the audience throughout the week. Lecturers will be not only representatives of Sevastopol, but also well-known theater figures in Russia.
This year there will be new names and new points on the geographical map of the festival, as well as favorite bands from neighboring regions. But this holiday would not have happened without the active support of the Government of Sevastopol, the Department of Culture and the Presidential Fund for Cultural Initiatives— said the art director of the festival Aksinya Normanskaya.
The festival will be attended by creative teams from Omsk, Veliky Novgorod, Yekaterinburg, Kaluga, Kazan, Lobnya, Ryazan, Moscow, and Crimea. For the first time, performances from theaters from the liberated territories — Gorlovka and Makeevka — will be presented.
The poster, conditionally, can be divided into groups, for example, favorite folk tales: “At the command of a pike”, “Ivan da Maria”, “Zhikharka”; classic fairy tales, without which the festival is impossible to imagine — «Aibolit», «The Golden Key or the Adventures of Pinocchio», «Cinderella» and «Little Red Riding Hood and KO». An interesting third group is theatrical «covers» — «The Golden Antelope» and «Vacation of Boniface». High classical literature will be presented by The Little Prince and The Black Hen— says the playwright of the festival Igor Azarov.
Thanks to comprehensive support, children from remote areas of Sevastopol will be able to watch festival performances for free.
Children who live in the villages of Orlinoye, Frontovoe, Ternovka and Novobobrovka, in the cities of Inkerman and Balaklava or have a rest in the health camp «Laspi» will have a unique opportunity. They will be able to watch the performances of the Kolyada Theater, the city of Yekaterinburg, the Gorlovsky Puppet Theater and other groups for free— commented the coordinator of the festival Yulia Pimkina.
The work of the jury will also be experimental. Taking as an example the work of the Great Children’s Festival under the direction of Sergei Bezrukov, children will become members of the jury in the Fairy Kingdom.
Since this is a festival for children, the children will determine the winners. But they need the help of an experienced comrade. Therefore, an expert council has been created to help the Royal Jury stay on track and make decisions. For us, this is a new and interesting experience, we really want to see how everything turns out, — says the artistic director of the festival Lyudmila Orshanskaya.
Over the years of the Fairytale Kingdom festival, Sevastopol residents have been able to get acquainted with more than 55 theater groups from all over the country, which create performances for children and youth in various genres. In 2023, the poster was made up of about 14 teams.
