The "Csiky Gergely" Hungarian State Theatre in Timișoara covers the preferences of the town's multicultural audience through a rich repertoire, sensitive to the taste of the public for the classic or contemporary authors. The programme includes different types of performances: classic and contemporary theatre, one-man performances, non-verbal performances, music, puppets and marionette theatre plays.
A Hungarian theatre troupe officially exists in Timișoara since 1953, even though a century-long tradition exists. А decree issued in 1953 specifies that Timisoara National Theatre will have a Hungarian section. Starting with 1957 it becomes and independent institution and since 1990 it honours the name of Hungarian playwright Csiky Gergely.
