MMK Supports Theater Festival

UrBC, Magnitogorsk, June 28, 2019. Magnitogorsk Iron & Steel Works’ Uralskiye Zori Children’s Health Camp recently hosted the local festival lab Theater Territory as part of its Children’s Hit Project, the plant’s press service reports.

The festival was supported by Magnitogorsk Iron & Steel Works (MMK) and Magnitogorsk Council. The opening ceremony included a welcome address by director of Chelyabinsk Region Children’s Extracurricular Training Center Irina Skalunova, a series of introductory presentations, and welcoming words from the event coordinators Anna Vokhmyanina and Oleg Zakirov.

The children, who came to the camp from Magnitogorsk, Korkino, DistrictNagaibaksky, and District Kizilsky, had an opportunity to engage in arts and crafts trainings. Olesha Kuzminykh, a singing tutor from Chelyabinsk, coordinated a breathing and diction workshop for them. Tongue-twisters proved a very entertaining part of the class, as did learning some songs from their play by heart. The children were particularly excited by the PU foam mask-making workshop: during the two-and-a-half-hour master class conducted by Elena Shalygina from Chelyabinsk Training Center the children made masks for all the characters in their play using special pre-made cutouts.

The play itself, Count to Five by Mikhail Bartenev, premiered on the final day of the festival.
