Mission Statement

The Mission of Reno Little Theater is to produce high-quality theatrical experiences that inspire, entertain, and enrich our diverse community. As Nevada’s longest-running community theater, we honor tradition while encouraging innovation, creativity, and community participation in the magic of theater.


Reno Little Theater provides a setting for people of all backgrounds to learn about live theater. Over the years, Reno Little Theater has offered adult and grammar-school drama classes, play-writing competitions, a children’s theater, and over 470 on-stage plays. Reno Little Theater has also taken its productions from the main stage to Reno parks and to other Nevada communities. The theater offers a variety of plays each season, including musicals, comedy, mystery, suspense and drama.

Reno Little Theater produced it first play, Three Cornered Moon, at the University of Nevada in 1935, making RLT Reno’s (and Nevada’s) oldest community theater, and one of the country’s oldest. In 1941, Reno Little Theater purchased Dania Hall, at Sierra and 7th Streets and, with community funding and volunteer labor, remodeled the building and finished the interior as its first theater. The building served Reno Little Theater for over 50 years before being demolished to make room for a casino parking garage. We opened doors at our new theater, on 147 E. Pueblo St. in January of 2012.

Reno Little Theater produces plays during a season that runs from September until July. Plays open with a Friday evening performance and run for three weekends. Friday and Saturday performances start at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday afternoon performances are at 2 p.m..

We also produce a number of special events during the year.
