Do the artists have a place on the football scene? We will get the answer to this question on September 9, 2018 at Beroe Stadium in Stara Zagora, when Beroe’s professional football players will face the dream team of theater and film actors in a charity match. The purpose of the soccer game is to help implement the second edition of The International Student Theater Festival “Danail Chirpansky” in April 2019.
In the city, where “Beroe” means the world, the actors Stanimir Gamov, Darin Angelov, Dejan Angelov, Velislav Pavlov, Bashar Rahal, Alek Aleksiev, Orlin Pavlov, Martin Gyaurov, Nikola Stoyanov, Lyuben Kanev, Nikolay Mutafchiev, Vladimir Lyutskanov, Ivaylo Zahariev, Niki Iliev, Julian Petrov, Hristo Petkov, Atanas Atanasov, Leo Bianchi and Valeri Yordanov will be out on the football field under the coat of arms of ISTF “Danail Chirpansky”. All of them will try their strengths and enthusiasm against the professionals from Stara Zagora in an epic friendly encounter, filled with sporting spirit and desire to support the festival.
The International Student Theater Festival is dedicated to Danail Chirpansky, an inspirational person and student at National Academy of Theater and Film Arts, who lost his life after a car accident in April 2016. The idea for the charity match was born from the life story of Danny himself, who was part of the Beroe’s Junior Team, until he found his greatest passion – the theater.
Because of the immense love and admiration for Danail, his devotion to theater and the great success for the first edition of ISTF, the coordinators wish to make this festival a tradition for Stara Zagora and the country.
All funds from the sold tickets will be used to implement the second edition of the ISTF in April 2019. Tickets can be purchased online at eventim.bg, as well as from all Eventim offices in the country, OMV petrol stations and Office 1 stores.
The event is supported by the Municipality of Stara Zagora, PFC Beroe and FLAIR. Media partners are DarikRadio and lovetheater.bg.
