Drama Theatre - Lovech
Drama Theatre - Lovech was founded in 1969. It was given the new wing of the building of N. V. Gogol Community Centre – a 600-seat auditorium, dressing rooms and all corresponding equipment. After the arson of the building in 1970 and the three-year-long reconstruction that followed, on 29 October 1973 its new auditorium was revealed along with the premiere of Dimitar Talev’s ‘The Bells of Prespa’, directed by R. Sadakov.
Many renowned theatre directors have worked at Drama Theatre – Lovech through the years.
Many are the names of actors who began their creative journey on the stage of the Lovech Drama Theatre. To this day actors ‘born’ in Drama Theatre – Lovech work in the companies of many theatres.
Recently, parallel to the staging of classical works directed by established names, the theatre’s repertoire policy has been primarily focused on the support and the realization of projects by beginning directors, scenographers and actors. With the setting up of a Chamber stage in the theatre’s building in 2007, the infrastructure of the institution could already create an opportunity for establishing a work environment for young artists.
The company of Drama Theatre – Lovech consists of 11 actors. The theatre has two stages – a big 460-seat auditorium and a 48-seat chamber stage.
The theatre strives to establish itself as an active cultural center not just on a local but also on a national level.
