Winchester Little Theatre’s mission is to present, produce and encourage the production, acting and writing of plays, dramas, comedies and all forms of entertainment and to encourage the production, direction, acting and writing of plays, and the appreciation of them. In addition, WLT for Kids is committed to creating a broad range of educational experiences for not only the children participating in the production, but for those attending the performance, and a much-needed venue for theater for the younger audience.

The Winchester Little Theatre was organized in 1929 “…to present, produce and encourage the production, acting and writing of plays…” by a group of persons interested in providing an outlet for their artistic interests and bringing to the community entertainment and culture. The first production, Ario de Capo, was staged at Handley High School in 1930. By 1955 the WLT had found a home in the old Bark Mill, which was owned by one of its members. Here the group began to do shows in “arena” style, or theater-in-the-round. In 1974, WLT stayed on track as it moved into the old Pennsylvania Railroad freight station (circa 1895). Through the generous support of friends and patrons, the building was paid for in only three years. The years have seen many changes in the Winchester Little Theatre; in its organization, its players, its productions and its audiences. We look with enthusiasm and anticipation to many theatrical years ahead.
