Ways to Give

croppedactIn 1947, seven plucky actors rented a hall to put on a play in San Luis Obispo. They didn’t know if anyone would come, but when the curtain rose that night, there was an audience. And when the curtain fell, applause filled the hall. No one dreamed that such a small beginning would lead to more than 900 productions staged by the Little Theatre over the past seven decades. Our 70th Season celebrates that  past, embraces our present and looks forward to an exciting future.  Your generous support today will help to ensure that “the show will go on” for many years to come.

Six ways to support the Little Theatre:

  1. Donate – Your contribution supports adventurous, thought-provoking, high quality entertainment and creative performing arts education all year long.
