My name is Oksana, I’m a mother of one of the students of the Starobilsk Children’s School of Arts. My child entered the vocal class of this school last year. We were very lucky, because this year there was a new subject – the production of musical performances.
Children were delighted with their performance and the applause of the spectators after the first play. So they wanted to speak more. Routine lessons have turned into amazing rehearsals. Children have learned not only theatrical art, but in the eyes of parents and teachers, they have revealed as individuals, becoming more confident. Students have produced three musical compositions during the first year.
Given the fact that there is no theater in our town, but there is a desire of our artists to play the stage and give people a good mood, our children were inspired by the idea of creating the first children’s mobile musical theater.
Parents have participated in the preparation of performances too, we have prepared decorations, have sewed costumes, and our teacher even has played the role – she was the grandmother Shura and played saxophone. During this period we, parents, children and educator, have become very rallying and friendship. When we heard about the program “Stairs”, we decided to register our project and realize the dream of our children and children of the whole town.
Our children want further developing. They dream inspired viewers, visiting other cities, travelig to remote villages, sharing their skills. After all, in addition to the vocalists, our theater has violinists, record players, pianists, guitarists, and bayanists. The purpose of our theater is to make the world better.
We have already started to popularize our group and our school in the Internet. From reviews and “jokes” on Facebook and YouTube, we realized that the children’s musical theater is really interesting in our town. Therefore, we were even more sure: we must go on! It is not enough about 60 thousand UAH for development of the project for mobile music equipment.
Tours would help broad the horizons of young actors, give them a professional and life experience. First of all, the theater aims to gather as much public as possible to attract viewers to high art. We plan to perform in the Summer theater, in the kindergartens in our town. We will have the opportunity to perform in the open air, because there is no a scene or the house of Culture in every village where we can do. For the first year, the children prepared three musical works, two musical tales and one musical. Subsequently, students could put up their productions for a small fee to raise funds for the development of theater, costumes, scenery, in order to participate in charity events. The biggest dream of the theater is to raise funds to by the school bus for the Children’s Arts School. We can imagine how it, our bus, with the logo of our school, goes on tour of carrying small artists or brings them to Arts School. Both buildings of the school of arts are located on the edge of the city and children have to walk for an hour and more to get there every day. There is no urban transport in our town, so we will have a very strong incentive to work and develop in order to benefit the school, students, their parents and all the spectators. It is known that «Drop by drop and the pitcher is full».
The highest appraisal and successful result of our project will be the creation of the same children’s musical theaters in our small towns and villages in Ukraine.
