The theatre was formed in 1928. In its development the theatre is steadily moving towards synthetic art, integrating various artistic forms: the words, the singing, choreography, music and stage design - all brought together on an equal footing. This is why the Young Spectators' Theatre repertory features the musicals The Fiddler on the Roof and The Puss in Boots, the show performances A Feast of Disobedience and On Holiday Back to Childhood. An important event in this context was the production of Hans Christian Andersen's A Girl with Matches. At present the Children's Theatre is producing a new performance - a parable entitled The Constellation of Omar Khayyam.
Nabi Abdurakhmanov directed his first production as a student - in 1980, when he began working with the Yosh Gvardia company. It was M. Vorfolomeev's A Saint and a Sinner. Over the eight years of his association with that theatre, Abdurakhmanov staged twenty-four plays, including Askad Mukhtar's Price of Gold, produced in the age-long tradition of Uzbek street theatre. In 1988 Abdurakhmanov formed a new theatre, Dard, which lived for over two years. In 1991 he became Artistic Director of the Tashkent Young Spectators' Russian Theatre.
