Town Theater in Český Krumlov

Town Theater in Český Krumlov

The present theater building in Horní Street was opened after a long-term reconstruction in June 1993. The Town Theater joins a long rich theatrical tradition in Český Krumlov. Even in the 17th century a wooden theater was built as a part of the Jesuit college in Horní Street (presently Hotel Růže Český Krumlov ). It moved to to the building at Horní No.153 in the 1970\'s. The theater stayed there until 1971, when the building became a part of a newly reconstructed Hotel Růže and the theatre hall was discontinued. Theatrical life continued in provisional stages and after nearly a quarter of a century the theatre got its own building. The opening performance was a play by John Steinbeck "Of Mice and Men" performed by the Prague theatre company Pod Palmovkou on 22nd June 1993.
