ABOUT THE LITTLE THEATRE

The Little Theatre is a volunteer-driven community theatre. We produce 4 main stage shows each season and a children's theatre outreach production each summer. The theatre has been in existence for 75 years, since 1944. Our mission is to showcase the talents of local volunteers and to entertain and enrich our community by "producing good plays done well".
