Theater festival Modrý kocour (Blue Tomcat)

February 19 – 23, 2020, Turnov

25th jubilee of the annual multi-genre theater festival of dramatic and musical, student and experimental performances

ABOUT FESTIVAL

At the end of February, Modrý Kocour will celebrate its 25th anniversary. The Blue Tomcat will be a quarter of a century old. Since its birth in 1996, it has grown into the biggest amateur theater festival in the Czech Republic. Although, in essence, it has always been organized as a regional competition, its scope has long surpassed all national amateur events (except for their great grandfather – The Jiraskuv Hronov festival).

As you can expect, we will celebrate… a lot! Look forward to seeing theaters that have defined the Blue Tomcat spirit for decades – Vosto5 and The Best-Behaved Teddy Bears (Nejhodnější medvídci). We will also commemorate. We are preparing audiovisual installations. Just the twenty-tier cake plan makes us worried. But it will happen. And we do not want to hog it for ourselves. We will invite several foreign theater groups to the party as well – to raise glasses together and to mix up the theater gene pool.

The program will be more packed than ever. Therefore, we strongly advise the theater groups to send their applications as soon as possible (the application process will close at Christmas). We don’t have space for everyone, so do not hesitate! Go to the application form through this link→

Wish us well for the preparations! As always, we will try to make the event exciting and exceptional.
