Little Theatre of Alexandria Turns Seventy Five

Comedy and Tragedy TheatreKicking off the Jubilee Celebration will be none other than the appropriate Tony award winning musical 1776.  The Little Theatre of Alexandria or LTA is a non-profit organization that is a local treasure.  The theater bought its first building in 1939 on Ramsay Alley in a former blacksmiths shop.  During WWII the theater was shut down and when they reopened Harry Truman was know to attend LTA plays.

With the growing popularity of local theater the LTA was able to buy a new building, its current home, at 600 Wolfe Street in 1961.  With 213 seats, dressing rooms and rehearsal space the theater is well known to the locals in Alexandria and surrounding communities.   Staffed by volunteers the LTA this year for the first time received a grant from the city of Alexandria to help with the production costs associated with 1776 and funding the plays performance at Fort Ward Park on August 21stOutside of the musicians everyone else involved in the production is unpaid.

Little Theatre of Alexandria is the oldest awarding winning small theatre company in our area and the actors who participate in the plays are local.  The biggest selling production for the theatre is Hair, though most productions run about 90% sold out.   If you haven't checked out a production at the LTA you might be surprised at what you have been missing.  This season promises to bring a few new productions, a few familiar productions and a surprise or two for the audience.

Cindy, at least once a year I go see a show at the Little Theatre of Alexandria.  With its friendly and small community theatre atmosphere, it certainly lives up to its name, but they always put on some big performances.
