Oh, I enjoy watching theatre shows!
It's such a pleasantry... I like going to theatres and I do as much as possible. I actually play in one theatre. Of course, it's not a professional acting, but I enjoy it and perhaps I'll act in professional shows one day;). The last show I watched was Dervis i smrt(Dervish and the death), it's about the political situation in Bosnia in 19th century, about Ahmet Nurudin(a dervish), who worries about his brother's arrest and the situation in the country. It's very interesting, and there's a book with the same name by Mesa Selimovic, one of the biggest Yugoslavian writers ever.

Theatres are one of the most populal kinds of entertainment in our city. Perm is a cultural centre of the Perm region. I am interested in traditional perfomances more, because their plot is better than modern shows' plot. I will see "Frankenstein" this winter holidays.

I really enjoy going to the theathre. This year I've seen the ballets Cinderella, The swan lake and Nutcracker and several operas also (honestly I don't like operas that much). But I've never seen such unusual performances like this one.
Ah, sure, Craig Fletcher was sooo cute :3
