For over four decades, the Washington Little Theater has been entertaining audiences with quality dramatic, musical and operatic performances for people of all ages, making it one of the longest running community theaters in the state of Georgia.
In addition to a full schedule of traditional live theater productions, the Washington Little Theater also offers an annual Summer Drama Camp for children ages 8-18 in June, as well as a children's theater production geared towards local school children every September.
The theater also works closely with the Washington-Wilkes Arts Foundation and the Washington-Wilkes Historical Foundation to bring a variety of traveling shows, lectures, workshops and musical performances to the community throughout the year.
The Washington Little Theater Company was established in 1971 by a group of creative individuals who wished to foster, encourage and promote the development of regional talent in the dramatic arts. Their mission was accomplished, at first, under humble circumstances by renting vacant storefronts and school auditoriums around the city to host productions.
