puppet theatre

Location - Murmansk, Lenin Avenue, 27


Murmansk Regional Puppet Theater was founded on August 28, 1933.

The first artistic director, Viktor Podobedov, created a children's theater in Khibinogorsk (Kirovsk). During the Great Patriotic War, the theater served the cause of victory over the Nazis. In total, during the war years, more than 100 concert programs were prepared and about 1000 frontline concerts were played, at least 200 directly in the frontline zone. For their work, the entire staff of the puppet theater was awarded medals "For the Defense of the Arctic." In 1949 the theater moved to the city of Murmansk.

In 1972, an event took place that radically changed the life of the theater - the Murmansk Regional Puppet Theater moved to a new building at 21A Sofia Perovskaya Street. The theater now has its own auditorium, dressing rooms for artists - everything that a professional theater has!

Over the years, the theater's activities have expanded significantly - the number of performances produced has increased, the interest in the theater among spectators of Murmansk and the Murmansk region has grown significantly. In the early 2000s, the question of providing the theater with its own separate building was seriously raised. In 2012, it was decided to transfer the building of the former Murmansk Garrison Officers' House to the puppet theater. At the moment, the theater is located in a separate, own building, at the address: Lenin Avenue, 27.
