The history of the Theatre of Youth in the dynamics of time
The decree on the establishment of the theatre, now known as the Musrepov Theatre of Youth, was issued on September 6, 1944. The director and head of the creative team were the People's Artist of the USSR N. I. Satz. In 1946, a separate Kazakh group appeared, which was already awarded the prestigious Lenin Komsomol Prize in 1967. In 1985 the theatre for children and youth of Kazakhstan was divided into two autonomous collectives:
- Kazakh Theatre of G. Musrepov;
- Russian Youth Theatre.
Initially, the building of the Alatau Cinema, which served as a shooting pavilion for Mosfilm and Lenfilm studios evacuated during the war, became the home of the Youth Theatre. The first productions of the future theater by Gabit Musrepov were the plays by Red Cap (based on the work of Eugene Schwartz) and a drama by Isidor Stocking Assad Leiden.
