Founded in 1928, this theatre opened with a dramatization of ‘Uncle Tom’s Cabin’. Initially, Russian and Uzbek theatre groups were integrated but in 1967, Russian productions were hived off, to become the ‘Tashkent State Russian Theatre of Young Spectators’. In recent years the Uzbek State Youth Theatre (under the aegis of the Uzbek Ministry of Culture) has acquired new energy and vision. An affiliated Studio School of Dramatic Art was opened in 1991 and this has helped to raise standards. In 1998, the company acquired is present name; it has undertaken several foreign tours and frequently participates in international competitions. It has a wide-ranging repertoire of plays by Uzbek and international authors.
