The organizers took care about creation of a festive mood for spectators, among whom there were many children including those with disabilities. In the building foyer, they were greeted by animators in costumes of hares and pirates.
A real excitement was caused by the main characters of the New Year – Father Frost and Snow Maiden. Those wishing to take pictures with them stood in a line.
During the performance, the heroes told the children about the important role of the family, friendship and love showing a journey through a dangerous fairytale country, which the characters started at request of the hare.
The main roles were performed by the young actors Anastasia Kormishina and Ruslan Potanin, who played a brother and a sister.
The children's attention was focused on the show since the very first minutes because the characters were not only on the stage but also came down into the auditorium making the spectators involved in the action. In addition, during one of the scenes the characters put paper hare years on some children's heads, which further enlivened the performance.
Minimalistic stage scenery allowed the audience to concentrate on the bright elements of the performance including those when actors wore unusual and circus costumes. The scene decoration was almost entirely limited to white cubes of different size, where animated designer's sketches were projected.
During the intermission, the children were given torches in the form of a heart and asked to switch them on when the magician says to do so. That was why a part of the second act the young spectators spent in readiness to personally help the characters, which caused even more empathy with the Christmas adventures of the brother and sister.
The action of the play smoothly flew to celebration of the project team. When all participants of the creation of the show were announced, the stage and the space in front were filled with people of different ages. The audience thanked each of them with applause.
All money from ticket sales will be transferred to rehabilitation centres and medical institutions to children on waiting lists of several Penza foundations. The report will be published on the project site.
