Welcome To The Little Theatre
WHO WE ARE
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.

Brothers Nick and Nigel Bottom are desperate to write a hit play but find themselves stuck in the shadow of that Renaissance rock star known as "The Bard." When a local soothsayer foretells a future where theatrical productions involve singing, dancing, and acting – all at the same time – Nick and Nigel set out to write the world's very first MUSICAL! This wild and hilarious comedy opened on Broadway in 2015 and was nominated for 10 Tony Awards, including Best Musical.

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.
