Since 1946 the theatre has been considered an independent state cultural institution entitled National Theatre for Youth. Gradually, the company developed two different repertoire sections – one for kids and teenagers, one for adults.
The Youth Theatre has always been respected – not only because of its performances for young audiences, but also because of its exciting stage interpretations of classical and contemporary adult plays/novels.
The Youth Theatre has always worked in close relations with some of the best actors, directors, designers, and composers Bulgaria has to offer. Its uniqueness as a theatre, which is committed to creating work both challenging and accessible to the widest range of audiences, keeps it vibrant and appreciated by many people. The Youth Theatre is considered to be “the theatre of all generations” and envisions creating “family productions” which will inspire and attract all generations to a single performance.
