First children’s musical premiered in Kazakhstan
Kazakhstan’s first children's musical was premiered at the Lermontov State Academic Russian Theatre. The entire troupe consists of young actors. The eldest performer is only 10 years old. A popular drama actor, the founder of creative workshop ‘Igra’ Rauf Khabibullin is the founder of the troupe.
Rauf KHABIBULLIN, DIRECTOR:
When you see already the result of the work, you realize that all was not in vain, and this is a burst of energy and strength, therefore, all this can be easily obtained.
The play by Mikhail Bartenev was chosen for the country's first children's musical. Events are developed based on the well-known tale about a wolf and goats. A mother goat was played by 8-year-old Adel.
Young artists realize that a success on stage brings them pleasure.
Adel KIM-NURUMBETOVA, PERFORMER OF MOTHER GOAT ROLE:
I love the stage. It is my favorite hobby. I love performing on stage, when all the people look at me, when they applaud, when they like the way I play.
Timofey KIM, CHORISTER:
I’m part of a play for the first time, and I really like when people applaud.
The best singers, choreographers and teachers of calisthenics had worked with the young artists for two months. Rehearsals lasted for a month. The children have managed to create a musical that carries a very important message about the importance of family, friendship and mutual assistance. The troupe intends to present the play to Astana audience as well. They are planning to go on tour.
