As part of his trip to Kostanai Region, President Nazarbayev visited a new building of the Iliyas Omarov Kazakh Drama Theater.
The President underlined that successes in the socio-economic development of the country predetermine a keen interest of the people to the arts, and also emphasized a high level of development of culture in Kazakhstan.
A new building of the drama theater is equipped with necessary premises such as 10 dressing rooms, a rehearsal hall and other technical areas. The theater is also provided with lighting and sound equipment, as well as simultaneous translation and video recording booths on the stage. There is also a gym and a “winter garden” in the building.
The construction of the theater began in September 2010 and concluded in January of the current year. The theater has a large audience hall for 276 seats and the small hall accommodates up to 50 spectators.
