Theater's collective spent the jubilee with their permanent and beloved spectators, children. In October 2005 The Theater gave 4 benevolent performances for parentless children and those attending special schools.
As Ruben Babayan, then theater's Art Director, mentioned:
"For a theatrical figure the greatest occasion is pleasing the spectators and when they are glad this is the greatest occasion. I think that marking the jubilee with the spectators is the most efficient way."
