In September 1945 a prewar Lviv actor Bronisław Romaniszyn came to Elbląg. He was the founder of an amateur team of actors. On 10th November 1945 first theatre bills appeared in free Elbląg and the first premiere performance took place. It was “Chłopak z Solca” on stage in Adria restaurant that no longer exists. The team as Teatr Miejski (city theatre) performed in Elbląg, Pasłęk, Morąg, Tolkmick and Malbork. This amateur-professional group gained sympathy and developed its own audience. The group was suspended in spring 1950 because the amateurs could not bear the competition from professionals of the Stefan Jaracz Theatre in Olsztyn, who performed in Elbląg since autumn 1949.
