“Excellent Value”
Reviewed August 29, 2013

My wife and I have been attending Little Theater productions for over 25 years. This theater is a 100% volunteer run organization. No hired staff or actors. A rarity these days. As a result people who run the Little Theater, put on the productions, and volunteer many hours of support are all very dedicated and believe in what they do. When it comes time for a show this excellent is evident. Rarely am I disappointed in a production. Sets and lighting are of professional quality. The actors are well cast. There is an extraordinary amount of talented actors in Walla Walla. I've attended theater around the world. I've paid 10 time the dollars in LA, Chicago, London, and other cities for productions that were half as good at those at the LT. If you are in Walla Walla and have a free evening when a play is in production, by all means go! The LT is an excellent value for your entertainment dollar. Some productions sell out so advanced tickets are recommended. But don't hesitate to call the box office and get last minute seats. The theater is small and intimate. All seats tend to be good. I prefer the middle to back center sections as the front row is slightly below stage level and you can miss some of the movement in the periphery. Avoid row two (row B) that is inline with the front row. Most productions have a brief intermission with coffee and cold water and cookies for a donation. The is a small art gallery in the basement where a local artist displays their works to admire before the show or at intermission. While the main theater is wheelchair accessible via a ramp on the side of the building, the bathrooms are located down a flight of stairs that has no elevator. Usher are able to assist as needed. After each show patrons are invited to the basement to meet the actors. Drop in and tell them you enjoyed the show (and you will). The actors are not paid and will welcome the kind words. Enjoy the Little Theater.

“A barn-stompin good time!”
Reviewed June 23, 2013

I went there for an evening play - all performed by local, good talent. I knew one of the actors, a local prison Chaplin who stole the show, but still maintained a good character. It's an old dusty sort of playhouse with lots of history; out in the wheat fields near the train tracks. Yet it's well maintained by the proprietors and much loved by the locals. It's good times for a couple of bucks and a belly full of laughs. Plus, there's a guarantee for plenty of smiles all around. Bring that local wine and cheese in one of those baskets with a red-and-white cloth for a warm summer evening out with friends.

“Great Entertainment at a Reasonable Price”
Reviewed February 26, 2013

I have been to 4 of their productions in the past two years and always have a wonderful evening. This is great entertainment at a price most anyone can afford. Community Theater is worth investing in and you will not be disappointed.

“Season tickets should be purchased”
Reviewed December 23, 2012

I have had season tickets for several years and enjoy all the plays that are put on. One of the first plays I saw was when I still lived in San Jose, CA and was blown away by the quality.
