Chief Manager:

Tatyana Kasatkina

In 1989, the puppet theater was born in Nizhnevartovsk. But no one knew how it would be called, and to solve this problem, the administration of the theater appealed to the children of our city! And the children wanted the puppet theater to be called “Barabashka”. Barabashka is a small, unseen creature, and where it appears, miracles are created there. And for 27 years the puppet theater “Barabashka” gives all viewers joy, faith in the fairy tale and miracles.

The premiere of the first play “Golden Chicken” directed by V. Kulikov took place on June 14, 1990.

Today, the playbill of the theater features foreign, Russian classics, contemporary drama. The theater widely uses not only traditional forms of puppet theater, but also a “living plan”, plastic and musical forms. The theater actively tours Russia, puts performances not only for children, but also for teenagers and adults.
