The town received the theatre in 1955, when the building designed by Janusz Ingarden and Jan Dąbrowski was officially opened. It began its activity by staging a play by Wojciech Bogusławski, Cud mniemany, czyli Krakowiacy i Górale, whose plot takes place in Mogiła. The title of this comédie en vaudeville was also used to name the near-by housing estates: Krakowiaków and Górali.
