“The Ukrainian Folk Tales” is a project that has emerged as a response to current situation in Ukraine and Russia – the homelands of much of our students, cast and audience. Today we feel a special need to talk about the people of Ukraine and share their heritage and traditions. The folk tales is a common form of children tales in Ukraine and Russia, that teach children about people’s character, temperament, ideals and faith. “The Ukrainian Folk Tales” is a children's play based on cheerful and educational Ukrainian folk tales that teach children courage, persistence, kindness, gentleness and patience to their neighbor. We feel it is particularly important today, when the tragedy of Ukrainian people has become world- wide wound, to share with the audience, especially children, the beauty and the depth of Ukrainian folk tales, the soul and the culture of Ukrainian people.
