ALFA Theatre was established in Pilsen in 1966. A year later it began co-organizing the Skupa’s Pilsen festival, now profiled as a competitive biennial of professional puppet and alternative theatre.
ALFA Theatre is one of the best Czech and world-renowned professional puppet theatre ensembles. It is connected with the best authors and artists. In the theatre we consider the puppet to be a dominant and tempting stage phenomenon, but we also welcome alternative theatre methods. The theatre turns to a very wide audience – from kindergarten children to youth and adults. We also try to cooperate with interesting filmmakers.
Every year Alfa plays at many national and international festivals – the most successful production of the “Three Musketeers”; has won over 27 awards and has been shown across Europe, the USA, Canada and Japan.
