Nicosia, Dec 22 - The new building, to be situated in Nicosia’s old GSP stadium premises, will cost 9.4 million Cyprus pounds ($21.4 mil). It aspires to give a new momentum to theatre activities on the island with its two state-of-the-art stages (550 and 150 seats), offices, an exhibition area, a foyer, a bookshop, a restaurant and a cafeteria.

''With this project the Cypriot theatre makes a big step forward not only because the Cypriot Theatre Organization was, perhaps, the only theatre without a home, but because from this building, a momentum will emerge so that the idea of theatre will rise in the Cypriot peoples’ minds,'' the organization's Board of Directors Chairman Demetris Karagianis told the press.
