Production

The main stage of the Theatre hosts a famous Broadway comedy with theater and film stars, full of vivid reprises and provocative dialogues.

The play "Butterflies are Free” is staged rather often as it covers many topics that are so interesting and touching for young people: love, independence, relationships with parents, the courage to make decisions and be responsible for them. Some directors stage this play as a melodrama, and other - as a reflection about the meaning of life.

The main character, a young fellow Donald, is blind. He loves music and writes the songs. His family is not poor, but Donald wants to live alone, without the surveillance of his mother. He finds an apartment, and Jill appears to be his neighbor. She is extravagant and does not support long relationship. However, the mutual love changes them both: Jill ceases to be afraid of strong feelings, and Donald finds self-confidence. This story is called a fairy tale. There is no magic in it, but with verbal reprises there come hope, naivety, trustfulness and hope for the happiness.
