The Little Theatre of Alexandria is a prominent community theatre located at 600 Wolfe Street in Old Town Alexandria.
Founded in 1934, the Little Theatre of Alexandria is the oldest award-winning theatre in the Washington metro area and one of the few community theatres in the country with its building and ambitious seven-show season. Over the years, the audience members have included prominent people like President Harry S. Truman who have attended on more than one occasion, and President George W. Bush when he came to see his sister-in-law perform in Neil Simon’s Proposals. Since opening, the theatre has mounted over 350 productions.
Just like its name suggests, the theatre is small so there is no bad seat in the house which makes the performance even more engaging. For the show that I saw, it was an affordable price and the crowd was about what I expected it to be for A Christmas Carol. The acoustics were wonderful and the actors all seemed talented and passionate about their work. I went to the opening night, and I could honestly tell the amount of effort that went into it. For a suggested donation of $1-2, you can get some drinks and snacks before the show or during intermission.
Also, if you want to test out your acting skills, they offer classes and camps throughout the year
