In 1942 Leif Juster took over Søilen Teater in the street of Keysers gate in Oslo. The first revue by the theatre, called Saker og ting (literally: Things and such), opened September 3 the same year. It turned out that the venue was too small, and in 1945 Edderkoppen moved to St. Olavs plass. Juster runned the theatre until 1967.
