KELT presents “How the Grinch Stole Christmas”

I’m in the Christmas mood after last weekend when I enjoyed watching my “Who” friends and others in the Grinch play put on by KELT.  KELT stands for “Kazakhstan English Language Theater” and has a long and proud history of very good quality plays presented in English.  This theater was started by American Nathan Fleming years ago, it has been continued by Jessica Lewis, as their director.  Next spring they will put on the ambitious, musical production of “Grease.”  Anatoliy Ogay did a superb job acting as the Grinch, better than Hollywood’s version done by Jim Carey.  Also Selbi Durdiyeva played the obedient dog Max, she did an excellent job of being the kicked around mutt.  An American mother related how her little 3 year old girl started crying in the audience because she was so sensitive as to how badly Max was treated by the Grinch.  That’s believably good acting. Lots of laughs with a good moral in the end, thanks to Dr. Seuss. Thanks KELT!!!
