The History of Macon Little Theatre

In 1934, a small group of Maconites who were interested in bringing dramatic presentations to our community organized the Macon Little Theatre. Support for the theatre grew quickly and seven sites were initially offered for Macon's first community theatre.

For 80 years, Macon Little Theatre has provided high quality, family entertainment for the entire Central Georgia area. Since its inception, the theatre has presented performances of more than 300 major productions. Remarkably, every performance is produced primarily by volunteers - workers, set designers, seamstresses, actors - and, with the exception of one full-time employee, part-time personnel. The high quality of the performances is a reflection of the immense talent and involvement of hundreds of citizens.
