What NuclearKids project is?

Nuclear Kids is the International children's art project of the State Corporation “Rosatom”. Project was created in 2009.

Every year in summer 70 talented boys and girls, children of “Rosatom” employees from all over Russia, come together in the rehearsal base for three weeks to set and play the professional music performance (musical).

The script and music are original and are written specifically for the musical.

Who works with the children to create the musical?

Famous producers, directors, composers, choreographers and professional teachers work with children to create the musical. During the existence of the project we were collaborated with Lolita, Elena Kiper, Dmitry Bikbaev, Juliana Donskaya, Alexey Frandetti, Valeria Lanskaya, Kirill Kuzin, Vladimir Karabanov and with many others.

Where is the rehearsal base of the project?

Location of the rehearsal base was different: near Moscow, in the All-Russian Children's Center "Orlenok" on the coast of the Black Sea, in Keszthely (Hungary) on the shore of Lake Balaton, but in the last two years the project base was located on the scenic shore of the Gulf of Finland, near St. Petersburg, in the village of Repino.
