The Belarusian State Puppet Theater was founded in 1938. The theater began its activity in the Belarusian city of Gomel. At first, his repertoire included children's performances. The first performances shown were "By the Pike's Command" by Elizaveta Tarakhovskaya and "Grandfather and the Crane" by Vitaly Volsky. They brought great success and fame to the puppet theater.
In 1950, the puppet theater moved to Minsk to a new building at 20 Engels Street, specially built for the needs of the puppet theater. The hall of the Belarusian State Puppet Theater is adapted for young spectators, but it is also comfortable for adults.
In 1956 Anatoly Lelyavsky came to the theater, in 1957 - Leonid Bykov. With their arrival a new era of theater creativity begins. This creative tandem offered an innovative approach to performances. The Belarusian Puppet Theater, in addition to the children's repertoire, began to stage performances for adults. The repertoire includes works of famous Belarusian classics: Yakub Kolas, Yanka Kupala, as well as performances based on the works of world classical literature by William Shakespeare, Vladimir Mayakovsky, Karl Gozzi, Mikhail Bulgakov.
In puppet theater performances, live actors increasingly appear on the stage, becoming actors, along with puppets.
In 2008, the Belarusian State Puppet Theater was awarded a high government award. He was awarded the title "Honored collective of the Republic of Belarus."
The Belarusian puppet theater is in constant creative search. He's touring the world participates in festivals and is well known in European countries. So, in 2012, the play `` Why do people get old '' was shown at the Golden Mask festival.
