The theater consists of two parts: the former in 1840 converted granaries and the 1886 western part, it has two auditoria. The first permanent theatre building opened 17 October 1840 on the site of the original granary, of this building remains almost nothing, only a wall with a garden adjacent to House nr. 353. The last amateur-preformance 26 april 1886 held in the old building was Aleksander Fredro's comedy "Śluby panieńskie, czyli magnetyzm serca" (Maidens' Vows, or the Magnetism of the Heart). The last preformance ever: June 15, 1886, Jaroslav Vrchlický’s (born Emil Bohuslav Frída) comedy “Rabínova moudrost” (rabbinic Wisdom) by Zollner Theatre Company. The demolition of the Prague Port made way to build a new theatre in 1887, plans by architect František Buldra (Prague), inspection od the main building construction was performed by Builder František Klier, the National Theatre in Prague was taken as a model, the symbol of cultural revival of the Czech nation, hence its shape of a neo-renaissance façade as well as its Interior and decoration like the slogan "Tábor sobě" above the stage curtain. During subsequent years constantly modernized, such as electric lighting in 1904, in 1937 last major pre-war theatre adjustments when it was extended with the "Josef Kajetán Tyl House" adjacent to the South of the back of the original building, in that same year the two pillars which support the balcony above the entrance were removed. The building fell into disrepair 1958-1959 and had been even eligible for closure. 1965 Intensive reconstruction with neoclassical facade and a new auditorium for nearly 700 spectators, chief architect Václav Drozd, Interior of the great Hall academic architect I. Antonovičov. The result is a special combination of changes in one single phase with two connected rectangular auditoria. The smaller auditorium located in the historic building was designed for chamber music performances, this concept is a rarity in Central Europe. After five years of construction inaugurated 31 October 1965 with Alois Jirásek's "Lucerna" (lantern), the theatre was named after writer Ivan Olbracht, since 1990 its bears the name of native Oskar Nedbal (Czech composer, conductor and virtuoso).
