We would like to let you know about plans for our 2019-2020 Season.

Our Artistic Director, Ekaterina Vetrov, is planning to take 3 months in the Fall to do intense theatre training, practicum and work at Saint-Petersburg, Russia. Upon her return, we are preparing to take work of Once Upon a Kingdom Theatre to a new level and explore new creative directions that will incorporate the latest discoveries in international theatre practices.

Meanwhile, all classes will be postponed until January 2020. Auditions (for new students) to our Junior class and pre-registration interviews with our Senior students will happen in December 2019.

Our theatre does not stop its work for this period, we just go into so much needed planning and reorganizing phase. So please, feel free to contact us at any time with your thoughts, ideas, suggestions, projects and news!

Sending you our warmest regards!
Board of Directors: Ekaterina Vetrov, Alexander Vetrov, Maria Bugrova

“The Legend of Parvana Lake” tells a story about a beautiful Princess who decided to choose a husband by setting a challenge to the knights to find the Eternal Flame and bring it to her. But years pass, the Princess waits and waits looking through the windows of her castle, but none of the men come back… When the Princess losses her hope she starts crying. Her tears flood the valley and the castle creating a lake that is clear like a child’s tear. What happened to all those brave men and why didn’t they come back?…

This magical legend told through poetic text carries an ancient story about creation of one of the most gorgeous lakes in Armenia – Parvana Lake. The show incorporates the styles of physical theatre, shadow theatre and contemporary dance.

Actors use Russian, English and Armenian languages to tell this story, but most of all – their body language.
