The Music Man breaks records, Iraq sells out, The Goat takes the stage.

Good morning friends of the Little Theatre!

WHAT AN AMAZING RUN! The Music Man finished up a completely sold-out, record-breaking 5-week run yesterday, decidedly taking its place as the most financially successful season show in Little Theatre history! Thank you to director/choreographer Zach Johnson, musical director Lacey McNamara, and the wonderful cast and crew who have been working on this beautiful show for nearly 4 months! Audiences loved this retelling of Meredith Willson’s “valentine” of a musical. The Music Man was a great way to finish our mainstage season- thank you to everyone involved!

  • Musicman-08
  • MusicMan-16

The full houses didn’t stop there, though! Less than three hours after the final curtain came down on The Music Man, a new capacity audience flooded into the theatre!

Jill Turnbow played to a sold-out house last night for the closing performance of her one-woman show, Between Iraq and a Hard Place. Iraq was the final production of the Little Theatre’s inaugural AFTERHOURS@SLOTheatre season. Thank you to Jill for closing out the year on such a high note! You can check out our next season of AFTERHOURS shows by clicking HERE.


Our 2014-2015 come to a close with a BANG- Edward Albee’s Pulitzer Prize-winning masterpiece The Goat, or Who is Sylvia? This Ubu’s Other Shoe staged reading is directed by Jill Turnbow, and is a tragically comical play with a simple albeit deeply disturbing premise: a married man falls in love with a goat. And no, he doesn’t just love the goat like a pet; he is emotionally and sexually attracted to the animal. Once his wife finds out this sordid truth, all hell (and a lot of vases) breaks loose. We have assembled an amazing cast for this production: David Norum, Polly Firestone Walker, Daniel Freeman, and Anthony Hernandez. Click HERE to get your tickets- The Goat plays for three performances only: June 19 and 20 at 7:00 PM and June 20 at 2:00. This is going to be a wonderful way to finish out our 68th season. Come see this stellar cast for the last play of 2015-16.

SLOLT-Season-Brochure-Cover-outlineWEBOur 2015-2016 season brochure started arriving in mailboxes around the state last week and season tickets are flying out of the town.

We’re coming to the end of the Little Theatre’s most ambitious season in history: 25 plays, 225 performances, on 45 weekends throughout the year. More plays than any other theatre (professional or amateur) in the entire state of California. How does a season like this happen? ONLY because of the Little Theatre’s 300+ active volunteers. We couldn’t do it without you! So, let us say THANK YOU! On Sunday, July 19 join us for our annual open house and Volunteer Appreciation Party! This is an incredibly fun (free!) event where we can get together and reflect on the amazing season we brought to our community. Please RSVP by clicking HERE. See you there!

Thank you, everyone, for making this season possible. We have so much to share with you in the coming year(s). Don’t miss a moment!
