"It is a great honor and pleasure for me to be a representative and observer on the Bulgarian side of this incredible festival. I am very glad to be here again. Chu again we have the opportunity to make this amazing theatrical holiday happen. For me, this is one of the best amateur theater festivals that ever happens, although I don't like that word.
