It is an active presence in the life of the city, involved in organizing school festivities, numerous charity performances, exhibitions, concerts, national holidays, being always a generous partner and open to collaborations in a wide range of cultural events.
The basic activity of the institution is the making and presentation of performances for children in the home town, county and country, performing both at the theater home stage and at the community centers or houses of culture in other cities. Its performances are also present in national and international festivals.
"Prichindel" Puppet Theater mission is to educate the audience through art and to promote performing arts and also to foster cultural exchanges between areas and countries. Creating theater performances for children using mainly the art of animation and other forms of theatrical expression are part of the institution's nature and specificity.
The theater adapts to the nature of the public, by diversifying its offer of performances through the artistic view of its collaborating directors but also by selecting the titles that make up the repertoire. Organizing a grand festival, the "STORIES" International Theater Festival Alba Iulia, for an audience of all ages, has brought about the idea to create a projects theater that addresses mainly to young people and adults.
The promotion of the values found in the Romanian and universal literature, classical and contemporary can be seen in the theater staged performances.The Puppet Theater also initiated and conducts projects and programs in the field of formative-artistical cultural education.
