The Kazakh Music and Drama Theatre named after Zh. Aymautov in Pavlodar appeared in 1990 and it can be rightly considered the same age as independent Kazakhstan. The first play played on this stage was "Ayman-Sholpan" and to this day it remains a visiting card of the theatre.

The repertoire of Aymautov's muzdramma was created with the assistance of respected art connoisseurs: E. Tapenova, S and A. Bekbolatovs, S and R. Tazhibayevs, A. Zhuke and M. Manapov. They were invited by the akim of the region especially for "raising" the theater. Then their ranks were joined by T. Atambet, M. Bayzhumanov, I. Baktybaev, who were talented students of the Kazakh Institute of Arts and became leading actors of the drama theater. Each of them has contributed and continues to contribute to the creation of an interesting repertoire.
Significant are the performances:
- "Goats Көрпеш - Bayan Sulu";
- "Arshin Malalan";
- "Hello, I'm your aunt."
- "Kyz Zhibek".
The number of productions is increasing annually. On average, the team produces 7 new productions during the season, taking as a basis not only the dramaturgy of domestic classics but also works of foreign and Russian literature.
