The bomb attack during the second world war destroyed not only the theatre building of Szombathely but also the theatrical life for decades. It took almost 60 years until the social and the political will met becoming a common idea to establish a professional theatre in the city. As the result of a strong collaboration between the city council and the then intendant of the Hungarian National Theater, Tamás Jordán, the Weöres Sándor Színház was established by the local government of the city Szombathely in 2007.

Tamás Jordán has been elected to become the general manager. He took on the responsibility of recruiting an ensemble and to build a company from the beginning. By that time there were only a couple of independent theater groups acting in the city, mostly enthusiastic amateurs. Some of their talented members were also involved in the work of the newly founded Weöres Sándor Színház as actors, director or other personnel. Actors came also from the National Theater and from other theaters all around the country on the call of Tamás Jordán to join the adventure of starting a repertory theatre in a city where going to theatre-shows was a privilege of a few hundred people, who could subscribe for the season ticket for the guest plays of different theaters. After a year of preparation, the theatre moved into a former military community center to present the first premiere under unpretending circumstances, with the vision of a new theatre building in the near future. The plans of the new building were crossed by the financial crisis, so the local government decided to reconstruct the temporary settlement of the theatre to become the final home for the ensemble. This meant another poor year for the theatre in a culture house during the construction period.

The ensemble could take possession of the new building in January 2011. After the reconstruction 3 new venues has been equipped with brand new stage apparel, lighting, and sound system. The biggest venue is a classical proscenium theater built with an auditorium of 276 seats, the black box studio has 180 seats and there is a small studio with 66 seats. Since the beginning, the number of employed actors has grown from 16 to 30. As a repertory theater there are 8 new productions per season, sold not only for the 7500 subscribers but also for individual visitors. Besides these, we produce 1-3 new performances excluding the season ticket. In total around 70.000 people visit our 325 shows during a season. The shows are booked over 92 % in an average. Our repertoire consists a big variety of genre to fulfill the different expectations of the audience. We put at least one musical, some contemporary plays, and also some Hungarian and international classical dramas on stage, offering theatre experiences for the audience of all ages.

We are lucky to work with the most acknowledged directors year by year. Some of them are not only much called in Hungary but well known internationally as well. Róbert Alföldi, János Mohácsi, Sándor Zsótér, Péter Valló - just to mention a few of them - stand for a high standard. As the only one professional theatre within the area, we try to be open for guest plays as well. Every year there is a series organized of the best performances from Hungarian independent theatre groups. We organize exhibitions of all kinds, book presentation events and we also used to provide the location for regional music festivals (Lamantin Jazz Festival, Bartók Classical Music Festival and Seminar). Our work is valued by the audience and also by professionals. We have gained during the 10 years existence of the Weöres Sándor Színház 36 prices on different Hungarian theatre festivals.
