December 11, 2012. Pervouralsk New Pipe Plant Palace of Culture’s stage was used as the main venue for ChTPZ Group’s 10th Children’s Festival Snezhnost on December 8-10, 2012. Moscow-based theater Satirikon was the first to present its story called ‘Once upon a time in a village’. The theater actually took its first night to the Urals to present the play at the festival. The event’s honorary guest and the theater’s head Konstantin Raikin said that he thought very highly of the company’s initiative to hold a charity New Year event for the children living in Pervouralsk, Chelyabinsk, and Almetyevsk, ChTPZ Group’s press officer reports.

‘This country still has no laws to support those who do charity, even though the whole world is using these mechanisms. This is why charity is particularly precious in Russia. Snezhnost is a reaction to the under-developed arts patronage system in Russia, and festival that ChTPZ stockholders initiated as early as a decade ago was by all means a godly thing to do. I feel the plant’s management combine some reasonable practicality with taking care of their tomorrow,’ Raikin said.

In addition to Satirikon’s play, the festival in Pervouralsk featured a kind fairy tale for children called ‘Ding-Dong, I am Your Mother’ by Chelyabinsk Youth Theater and ‘The Thumbelina’ by Moscow Regional Young Spectators’ Theater.
