They were among the first actors in the theater. Andriy Semenenko was the chief director, Yakiv Vakulinsky - the director, Vitaliy Melnychuk - the chief artist. These were actually the pioneers of puppetry in Rivne region, who faithfully gifted their talent to fellow citizens and guests of the region for ten years in the future.
