The former Royal Court Theatres were constructed between 1909 and 1912 by the architect Max Littmann. The building complex consists of opera house, play house and administrative building. In 1924 the buildings were placed under a preservation order. The smaller play house was completely destroyed during the Second World War and only the opera house, decorated with neo-classical columns, survived the War.
The Schauspielhaus is the venue for both drama and ballet productions. 
Due to discussions about a reconstruction of the former playhouse a new building, designed by architect Hans Volkart, was constructed at the same place, beginning in 1959. In 1962 the Schauspiel Stuttgart could start playing at the smaller house which has been renamed as Schauspielhaus in 2002. Between 2010 and 2013 the Schauspielhaus has been basically renovated.
