The Moscow New Generation Theater has always been quick to come forward in support of charitable activities.
Every year on June 1 – International Children’s Day – the theater performs benefit shows for orphans, children with disabilities, children from low-income families, veteran’s families, refugee children and so on. MTYuZ’s constant partners include the Bank of Moscow, the UN Information Center, UNICEF, the Moscow Children’s Fund, and the Russian Children’s Fund.
Over the course of many years MTYuZ has provided charity organizations with free monthly tickets to shows. Currently, the theater renders assistance to approximately 70 charitable organizations in Moscow and the Moscow region. Moscow TYuZ is socially active not only in Moscow, but also while on tour.
It has become a fine tradition for the actors of the theater to visit children’s hospitals.
In January 2005, MTYuZ premiered “Pewter Rings” as part of the 2nd “Winter Fairy-Tale” Charity Theater Festival for Children in Chelyabinsk, Russia.
In September 2005, with the support of the Bank of Moscow, “Pewter Rings” was performed as a benefit for the children of Beslan in Vladikavkaz. In September of 2006, this project – Theater for the Children of Beslan – was continued. Four performances of “The Extraordinary Adventures of Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn based on Mark Twain” were performed for the youngest children who survived the horrendous terrorist attack at the Beslan elementary school. “Witness for the Prosecution” was performed for the parents, teachers, and children of upper classes.
