Welcome

We miss you!

Little Theatre’s mission is to bring live theatre to you, our audience. We’ll see you in person just as soon as we can!

Little Theatre has staged productions since 1923, through a Great Depression, a World War, and a devastating flood. Never have we shut down for nearly an entire season and the begining of the next. One day in March of 2020 we were enjoying a wonderful production of The Wedding Singer, while COVID storm clouds gathered. Opening night turned out to be closing night as well: good judgement and governmental restrictions shut us down the next day. We wouldn’t have thought that a year later that our doors would still be closed anxiously awaiting the time we can welcome our community back. We re-wrote our season several times, always hoping for the best, as we in community theatre do, but it was not to be. Like so many other life events, large and small, the Little Theatre 2020/2021 season will be forever marked *coronavirus.

Our hearts go out to friends and neighbors who suffered the effects of the pandemic. Unlike so many other enterprises, we were able to weather the storm, with the help of friends, foundations, and local government. We are grateful. Sadly, we have been unable to fulfill our mission of bringing “Broadway in Your Backyard” to the region. Now, we’ve returned to that mission with a creative project, ShakeStream. Until we can open our doors to live audiences we are planning ShakeStream, a series of three exceptional productions ready to stream for you: jazzHamlet (2016), King Lear (2020), and Three Romances about Macbeth (2019). Together they make up the ShakeStream, and they’ll debut once a month beginning in April and ending in June. Will you help fund the stream, to maintain our building until the curtain rises again? If so, you can find the information on facebook or in our newsletter. Even a small contribution goes a long way.

We welcome you to join us,

It’s been way too long. We missed you.

Thank you for your support,
