I recently participated in a reader's theater production, free to the public during these times of Covid-19. A lot of work went into this relatively small production. Drawing up plans - including allowances for safety and social distancing. Working with the county health department for approval to put on the event. These in addition to the production itself.

We, as a theater, have never done anything like this. And, all in all, it turned out better than I had expected. Kudos to the prime movers behind this project. I know it was a lot of work.

This theatre is the best show in town. Attending shows or working behind the scenes, one finds their place here. I've been working for over 35 years at The Little Theatre of Walla Walla and enjoyed every minute of it. Come join the Little Theatre as an audience member, actor, usher, designer, or in a variety of tech positions.

What an amazing place. The theatre was successfully operated Solely by volunteers for 73 years Adding a managing director only in the last two years. All other operations and productions are managed by community members. The productions are professional quality and shows are highly entertaining. This theatre has an amazing pool of talent to draw from. It’s a great place to volunteer. It feels like a family.

The Little Theatre has done a great job of providing good plays done well for 75 years. During this 'dark' time, they continue to reach out and plan ways to reconnect with their community. So many great volunteers have helped the Theatre so it can be around for years to come. We are looking forward to its reopening!

I discovered the Little Theatre when I was in college, and it charmed me immediately! It is small, intimate, and full of unbelievable talent. It is the hidden gem of the Valley.

Since my discovery, I have spent a lot of time at the Theatre and stand amazed at the history - 75 years of a volunteer-run organization that operates professionally with a large amount of fun! The Little Theatre of Walla Walla and other places like it are the types of organizations that make communities great.

I work as a volunteer for The Little Theatre. Some non-profits do not seem to want older volunteers, but The Little Theatre works to use all people interested in volunteering. I have had the privilege of working in a few different capacities; box office, usher, and usher coordinator. I often help my son when he is working on projects. The Little Theatre brings quality entertainment. The shows always impress me. They work to provide a place in shows both on and offstage for new comers as well as those who have been faithfully involved for a long time. I look forward to my time at The Little Theatre and hope to continue to volunteer for years to come.

I have been involved with the organization for almost 30 years. I believe the theatre works hard to provide quality entertainment while creating space for people to use their gifts toward a common goal.

The theatre has gone through some major changes over the last few years and it is in transition to reach out more to the community and meet the needs for the community.

The Little Theatre has delivered quality entertainment to the Walla Walla Valley for 75 years and that in itself should say something for the strength of the organization. Most of those 75 years the theatre has been ran strictly by volunteers. We run in the black, but in our course to not owe any money we have failed to fund raise for the purpose of updating our facility. This is a process the theatre is looking very closely at. The Theatre has hired it's first Managing Director who is responsible for helping with Development, Volunteers and Community outreach.

The board believes we are moving in a positive and growing direction which will help position the theatre to continue in through another 75 years.

I began getting involved with LTWW several years ago as a volunteer (actor, set builder), and was immediately embraced by and engrossed in the community. It has quickly become a home away from home for me in Walla Walla, full of wonderful, deeply committed people. LTWW has a rich history in Walla Walla stretching back for 75 years now, and is in the thick of modernizing itself for the next 75 years. Guided by a new strategic plan, a new full-time managing director, and a clear vision for desired improvements to the theatre, there's never been a better time to get involved with the Little Theatre!

Four years ago, on a whim, I decided to audition for a show. I got a part and never looked back. This theatre feels like home to me, and the people my family. We work hard to put on the best show we can and have a great time doing it. Now I am a board member, committee member, actor and costumer. I’m proud to be a part of this amazing theatre family.

This theatre has provided great shows for 75 years of which I have been a part of for the last 35. The people running this theatre are very welcoming and are always looking for new volunteers to help put on productions whether it is on stage, behind stage, ushering, designing, or anything associated with running a theatre. Each show produced is so well done. You can't go wrong by purchasing a season ticket or volunteering to work on a show. Come find out about The Little Theatre of Walla Walla.
