HistoryEdit

The Chuvash State Puppet Theater was founded on April 15, 1945 by theater director S. M. Merzlyakov.

On April 15, 1945 the troupe was shown a premiere ("Three girlfriends", author — S. M. Merzlyakov).

In 1951, the theater was eliminated, but a puppet team continued to work in the Chuvash State Philharmonic.

In 1958, M. Antonov (S. V Obraztsov's student) reactivated the theatre.

In 1996, the team wins the M. Sespel's Youth Prize of Chuvashia for its service to the arts.

The theatre is a member of the International Association of Puppet (UNIMA) and of the Russian Association "Puppet Theatre - 21".[1]
