65 Years and Going Strong
It's Your Community. We're Your Theatre.
San Luis Obispo Little Theatre is proud to be one of the oldest continuously running community theatres in the nation. In 1947, SLOLT began its theatrical journey with Blithe Spirit. Since then, over 600 productions have been staged in 25+ locations around the county. Through the generosity of the City of San Luis Obispo, we've enjoyed 17 years in our current locale, the former SLO County Public Library, in the heart of “SLO Town!”
SLOLT is committed to providing a wide variety of productions from musicals, comedies and dramas to our original fundraising shows, all of which consistently perform to sold-out audiences. SLOLT is also the home of our acclaimed Academy of Creative Theatre, helping young performers develop life-long theatrical skills and build self-esteem while having fun. SLOLT is eternally grateful to our amazing volunteers and donors who make it possible for us to continue offering the highest-quality in community theatre. Thank you!
