Welcome To The Little Theatre


As the oldest performing arts organization in Winston-Salem, The Little Theatre of Winston-Salem has presented professional-quality community theatre for more than 80 years. Generations have experienced spectacular productions as audience members, as well as the thrill of collaborating and creating onstage and backstage. As a fundamental part of Winston-Salem's cultural scene, we invite everyone in the community to exercise their imaginations, stretch their creative muscles, and experience the transformative magic of live theatre.

High-rolling gamblers, a fame-seeking showgirl, and one very determined missionary find love against all odds in this dazzling and romantic musical comedy. With a score that includes such memorable songs as “Luck Be a Lady Tonight” and “Sit Down, You’re Rockin’ the Boat,” Nathan Detroit, Sky Masterson, Miss Adelaide, and Sarah Brown watch bets fly and stakes rise from New York City to Havana and all the way back to Broadway’s Golden Era.

at Mountcastle Forum

Two narrators attempt to recreate all 209 of the fairy tales of the Brothers Grimm in a wild, fast-paced extravaganza. To make it more difficult, they attempt to combine them into one gigantic fable using Rapunzel, Rumpelstiltskin, Hansel and Gretel, Snow White, Sleeping Beauty, Cinderella and other more obscure stories like Lean Lisa and The Devil's Grandmother.

Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Statement

The Little Theatre of Winston-Salem is a community driven arts organization. As such, we see the true value and the critical role that diversity serves in helping our theatre and community thrive. Going forward, we are determined to foster an environment that respects and promotes the value of diversity. The Little Theatre of Winston-Salem believes in the transformative power of the arts to enrich lives and revitalize communities. We are committed to sustaining a diverse, inclusive, and equitable space where everyone who participates in our programming — patrons, artists, employees, volunteers, and students — feels valued and respected regardless of gender, age, race, ethnicity, national origin, sexual orientation, gender identity, education, or ability.

While this is not an end-all statement and will constantly evolve as we and our organization (continues to) learn and grow, this is a starting point for forming actions that will encourage equity and make an impact.

Commitment (some in place some and some in the process):

  • Evaluating all scripts with considerations towards inclusion and diversity within the season.

  • Increasing camp accessibility by providing scholarships to those in need of financial assistance.

  • Creating an equitable internship that includes compensation.

  • Seeking the recruitment, retention, and support of Black and Indigenous artists and teachers of Color.

  • Seeking opportunities to provide resources for students and their families to attend shows.

  • Working with individual directors to strive for diverse casts and design teams.

  • Ensuring that all directors have casting and dramaturgical resources available to them to protect and support the cultural specificity required of the work.
