The Little Theatre


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. 


Our mission is to entertain, engage, and enrich our community by offering diverse opportunities to create and experience the value and impact of live theatre.


We are committed to making theatre that engages, inspires and unifies communities. Each year, hundreds of volunteers get involved as actors, crew members, and ushers, while thousands participate as audience members. We encourage individuals of all ages and experience to be a part of our productions and learn from our professional directors, designers, and staff.


The Little Theatre of Winston-Salem is the oldest performing arts organization in the Triad.  Since 1935, we’ve been bringing the joy of theatre to the citizens of Winston-Salem.  We are proud of that legacy.



We strive for artistic excellence in all of our programming.  To that end, we maintain and provide the human, financial, and other resources necessary to support our productions, educational programming, and long-term sustainability.  Our staff and board practice and develop strategies to achieve the highest standards in our governance, management, and operational practices.


We create theatrical experiences that are open, affordable, and welcoming to all people of the region, regardless of race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, disabilities, age, class, and cultural heritage.  We strive to offer productions and theatrical experiences that reflect and serve the many cultures and lifestyles that make up the Winston-Salem community and greater Triad region.


We collaborate with individuals, arts organizations, educational institutions, governmental agencies, and social and service groups to help our community grow and work well together.  We encourage cooperation between our artists and the community, and we provide growth opportunities for anyone who wants to explore the performing arts, pursue a future in theatre, or keep theatre in their lives, while working in other fields.



We care about our audience.  From the moment you buy a ticket to the final bows, we strive to make it a fun and memorable event.  We also care about our volunteers, who are the lifeblood of our organization.  We foster a safe, encouraging, and supportive environment for everyone who participates: staff, artists, volunteers, and audience members.
