January 7 and 11 at 19.00 our viewers will have an unforgettable Christmas and New Year's Eve. We will show two different genre premiere performances, united by the charm of events and the festive mood.

The play "The Gifts of the Magi" was created after the story of the famous American writer O'Henry. That is, there is no sense in retelling the plot of the play - it is in Wikipedia, and the text has long been a world literary asset. No wonder the premiere of "The Gifts of the Magi" will take place on Christmas, because the events of this story unfold just before this magical holiday.

A unique presentation for Christmas and New Year: a real Ukrainian den! Ukrainian nativity scene known from the distant XVII century. This is a unique phenomenon in the theatrical culture of Ukraine. For example, the secular part of the presentation marked the beginning of the 19th century Ukrainian comedy. The nave puppet theater had the form of a two-story wooden house. On the second floor, they showed the Christmas drama, and on the first floor - a satirical household interface tied to it. It is for this classic canon that our nativity scene was built. The performance is interesting and useful, both for children of different ages and for their parents. It has a lot of live vocals, bright dolls, witty jokes.

The performance was created on the basis and with the support of the Department of Acting and Directing at the Puppet Theater of the Kiev National University of Theater, Cinema and Television named after IK. Karpenko-Kary by third-year students, course master Ruslan Neupokoev.
