2023 Season

Little Theatre of Wilkes-Barre is one of the oldest continuously-running community theatres in the United States and we are excited to announce that we are in our 101th season! Download our flyer and follow along as we celebrate a century and continue ensuring our legacy.

Dracula

The best dramas have the best villains — like the
immortal Count Dracula. An American producer saw this adaptation of Bram Stoker’s 1894 novel in 1924 at London’s Little Theatre, and brought it to Broadway. Little Theatre of Wilkes-Barre staged it in 1980. It returns as the first production of the 101st Season.

 

Stage Play by Hamilton Deane and John L. Balderston

From Bram Stoker’s novel

Dracula is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals on behalf of Samuel French, Inc.

Grease

Who doesn’t love Grease? The late-50’s rock-n-roll score brought a whole new rhythm to the Broadway musical, and we’re still hopelessly devoted to Danny, Sandy, Rizzo, and Kenickie. After a 25-year hiatus, LTWB is ready to take Greased Lightning for another joyride!

 

Book, Music, and Lyrics by Jim Jacobs and Warren Casey

Picasso at the Lapin Agile

Although Steve Martin is better known as a talented performer, he’s also the author of four plays. One is slightly ‘wild and crazy:’ the brilliant, funny, and very much offbeat Picasso at the Lapin Agile. Among the characters are Picasso, Einstein, a guy named Schmendimann, and one who may or may not be Elvis. You can find out who else shows up in May.

 

Stage Play by Steve Martin.

Produced on the New York stage by Stephen Eich and Joan Stein

The Wizard of Oz

Is there a movie more beloved than The Wizard of Oz? It’s the perfect film for a musical adaptation: the world is suddenly more colorful, everyone is transformed into someone extraordinary, and everything is controlled by a guy behind a curtain. Little Theatre will stage the outstanding1987 Royal Shakespeare Company adaptation this June.

 

Written by L. Frank Baum

One-Acts

The one-act play is a delightful format. So much can happen in around half an hour. In August, we will stage a weekend of both original and well-known short plays chosen from submissions by playwrights and directors. Even we don’t know what they’ll be yet! Watch our website and social media next summer.

Carousel

In 1945, Richard Rogers and Oscar Hammerstein
created a show that ran two years on Broadway and was named by Time magazine the greatest musical of the 20th century. Carousel was first produced by Little Theatre in 1954. We return to the Golden Age of Broadway in 2023, with beloved songs including the unforgettable “If I Loved You”.

 

Music by RICHARD RODGERS Books and Lyrics by OSCAR HAMMERSTEIN II

Based on Ferenc Molnar’s Play “Liliom”.

As adapted by Benjamin F. Glazer

Original Choreography by Agnes de Mille

The Rocky Horror Show

Little Theatre first produced The Rocky Horror Show, in 2014. As the midnight show let out, Main Street was awash with a happy crowd in heels, fishnets, and feather boas—and the women looked fantastic, too. Rocky returns for a very special weekend, including a MIDNIGHT show! Will it be different this year?
Darlings—it’s ALWAYS different!

 

Book, Music and Lyrics by Richard O’Brien

The Rocky Horror Show is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals
