Anyone keeping an eye on the life of the Burbank, Calif., Armenian community is aware that the Hamazkayin Theater Unit has maintained an annual tradition for several years and spares no effort to build on it. The unit stages at least one play a year. The target audience is children and teens of school age. The purpose is to encourage in them a love of theater and a commitment to it. Their elders are not left out either.
In mid-February, the unit offered up Dern u Dzaran (The master and the servant), a musical comedy based on Hovhannes Tumanian’s story bearing the same title. The play was part of a larger positive set of developments that promise new light on our horizons.
