The State Republican Uyghur Theater of Musical Comedy named after K. Kuzhamyarov in the southern capital of Kazakhstan - the city of Almaty, is the world's first and only professional theater of the Uyghur people.
The history of the theater began in the early 1920s, when a club of national minorities was founded in the city, where the Uyghur drama club operated. In September 1934 the opening of the regional Uyghur theater of musical drama took place with the production of "Anarkhan" by A. Sadyrov and D. Asimov. In the 1930-1940s. the theater staged performances: U. Hajibekov "Arshin Mal Alan", G. Musrepov "Kozy Korpesh - Bayan Sulu", K. Khasanov "Manon", L. Yukhvid and B. Alexandrov "Wedding in Malinovka", V. Dyakov and I. Sattarov's "Garip and Sanam", J. Moliere's "Healer against his will" and so on. There were staged performances based on the works of Soviet, Russian and foreign literature. From 1941 to 1961, the theater was located in the Shelek village of the Alma-Ata region and worked as the Uyghur regional music and drama theater.
A significant role in the formation of the creative activity of the theater was played by such people's artists of the Kazakh SSR as S. Sattarova, M. Bakiev, A. Shamiev, M. Semyatova, B. Omarov, V. Dyakov, honored artists - M Zaynaudinov, R. Tokhtanova, T. Bakhtybaev, G. Jalilov, H. Ilieva, D. Asimov, as well as directors - D. Sadyrova, A. Ibragimov, A. Mardzhanov and many others.
In 1961 the Uyghur theater moved to the city of Alma-Ata in a building on Pushkin Street. Then it became known as the Republican Uyghur Music and Drama Theater. In 1967 g. the institution was given a new name - Uyghur Theater of Musical Comedy. Two years later, the theater was given a new building on Dzerzhinsky Street (today Nauryzbay Batyr) with a hall for 480 spectators, which it shared with another theater, the Korean Theater of Musical Comedy.
From 1994 to 2002, the theater building was undergoing reconstruction. In 2005, on the eve of the 70th anniversary, the theater was named after the People's Artist of the USSR and Honored Composer Quddus Kuzhamyarov.
