Our partners are: Odeon, Ṭăndărică, Metropolis and Excelsior Theaters

 

Special thanks to Mrs. Dorina Lazăr, General Manager of Odeon Theater, and Mr. Călin Mocanu, General Manager of Ţăndărică Theater, for their generous support!

If it were not for them, we would only have longed both for a few productions and the workshop.
