The Little Theatre of Alexandria

Founded in 1934, The Little Theatre of Alexandria began as a small play-reading group. Full productions ensued, and in 1939 the group bought a rickety former blacksmith’s shop located in Ramsey Alley, between Lee and Fairfax Streets, for rehearsal space and construction of sets and costumes. During the 1950s, an empty lot at the corner of Wolfe and St. Asaph Streets became the permanent home of LTA. The theatre building was finally completed, and the first production – the comedy Send Me No Flowers – opened on November 18, 1961. Since 1934, the theatre has mounted over 350 productions. And today, LTA is the oldest award-winning theater in the Washington metro area and one of the few community theaters in the country with its own building and an ambitious season of wonderful productions. We look forward to seeing you soon!
