ABOUT OUR FACILITY

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Little Theatre is a cherished 76 year old volunteer-driven theater serving Walla Walla Valley communities.  We are the only theatre in Walla Walla dedicated to offering community members opportunities to participate in creative theatrical productions. By allowing audiences the chance to see friends and neighbors on stage as well as giving the opportunity to become a part of the production by volunteering, The Little Theatre has enhanced the lives of generations. Our charming , vintage theatre building is over 80 years old and we love the history of the building.  

We're always strategizing for ways to improve the functionality of our building and property to better serve our volunteers and patrons.  Creating an enduring legacy of live theatre is a top priority for us, so our facility is a top priority as well as you can see by the photos and the highlights listed below,
