Puppet Theatre Ostrava


The predecessor of the Puppet Theatre was an amateur puppet theatre called Wooden Kingdom which used to play fairy tales on Sundays. In the summer of 1946 it moved to the hall of a historical building on the corner of Masaryk Square. In 1953, a puppet scene named Regional Puppet Theatre was established and its first professional performance – the fairy tale of Father Frost – was introduced. Mr. Zdeněk Hapala, a seasoned theatre principal, was a director at that time. The seat in the above mentioned building should have been only temporary but in the end, the Ostrava puppeteers stayed until 1999, when they moved to the existing premises. In 2011, the so-called “alternative” scene, which stages performances for adults, was built. The extension of the theatre building offers visitors a theatre hall with a variable auditorium which is connected to an amphitheatre, a sweets shop with a puppet gallery and an unconventional fairy tale astronomical clock.
