The Unique Theater Aug 23, 2017
Syeverodonetsk City Theater has been the only professional city theater in Luhansk region. It was founded in 1993 as a Russian Drama Theater. The city theater occupies a Stalin area building that was built especially for the city leisure center in 1952.

In 2001 the theater suffered from a fire in the spectators’ hall. The consequences of the fire are still being removed. The building of the theater, the fountain in front of it and the park are in compete decay. They have never been properly maintained, like many state budget institutions in our country.

Syeverodonetsk is the only city in Luhansk region outside Luhansk that has always had a professional Drama Theater. The performances of the City Theater take place at the City Leisure Center or at the stage of Prokofyev Musical School.

All in all, the theater has staged dozens of performances since 1993. Also, the theater has been an active participant of numerous theater festivals in Ukraine and got different prizes. As of today, the theater's repertoire includes fifteen performances. We saw Gerda's Adventures staged at Prokofyev Music School and were positively impressed by the acting, dances and music.

Valentin Pukhalsky (1887-1981), a local sculptor, made a great contribution to adorning the theater building with his sculptures, molding and ornaments.

The theater staged made over forty performances within the years of its existence and took an active part in numerous theater festivals. The theater repertoire includes fifteen performances.

At present all the performances of the City Theater take place at the City Leisure Center or at the stage of Prokofyev Musical School. The theater itself was rehabilitated and dedicated in August 2017 as Luhansk National Ukrainian Musical and Drama Theater. Thank goodness this historical building has been preserved.
