The best plays of this period include: «Kashtanka» by Chekhov, «Tale of the pope and his worker Balda» by Pushkin and others. The theatre didn't stop working during the World War II. In 1950, it moved to Minsk and since the middle of the 60s the staff worked on the stage of the cinema «Victory». The staff of the theater didn't only to the plays for children. Experimental performances showed the combination of drama art, music and pantomime. The repertoire included works by Russian and foreign playwrights.
