The Kharkiv State Academic Puppet Theater named after V. A. Afanasiev needs help

The Kharkiv State Academic Puppet Theater named after V. A. Afanasiev is one of pearls of the city. During the existence of the theater, 260 plays were staged here, more than 20 of which were intended for an adult audience. Therefore, it is the Kharkiv Puppet Theater that has the largest repertoire for adult audiences among puppet theaters in Ukraine.

In addition, the theater is located in a building that is an architectural monument and is one of the hallmarks of Kharkiv.

Description of the facility

The theater was opened in Kharkiv on July 1, 1939. It presents a diverse children's and adult repertoire - 25 performances, including the most powerful evening repertoire among puppet theaters of Ukraine.

The theater has always successfully performed at festivals of puppet theaters, both within the country and abroad.

The current building of the theater was created according to the project of the architect Oleksii Beketov in 1907, and in 1968 it was reconstructed specifically for the puppet theater.

Interesting fact

In the interiors of the theater there is a permanent exhibition of the only theater puppet museum in Ukraine. The collection, which began to be collected since 1954, features rarities from many countries of the world. 


On March 1, 2022, shelling of the central part of Kharkiv by russian troops partially damaged the theater building, the windows and facade were damaged too.

So now the institution needs the help of caring Ukrainians.

You can support the pearl of Kharkiv region here.
