About: Pensacola’s Little Theatre

Date Posted: Sep 01, 2015

PENSACOLA, Fla., September 1, 2015 – Did you know that the Pensacola Little Theatre is actually a theatre company that performs at the Pensacola Cultural Center?

The group has been entertaining the Pensacola community for more than 80 years. Staying true to the true nature of a community theatre troupe, they have held their performances all over the city.

Since their founding in 1936, they have performed at many locations throughout Pensacola. Early performances were held in the old Chamber of Commerce auditorium, and then eventually moved to Pensacola High School.

In the early 1950s, the company moved to the Quonset Hut, which still stands on E Street, and later to the old Florida Movie House on Palafox Street in 1977. The group is now located in the old Escambia County Court of Records Building and Jail. The abandoned city landmark was transformed into what is now the Pensacola Cultural Center and the group christened its new home with a production of “The Wizard of Oz” in 1996.

The group is now led by a dedicated staff and hundreds of volunteers who strive to provide the Pensacola community with entertainment and education through volunteering, outreach, classes, and performances. Come celebrate the local talent and become inspired by these great artists.

Become a slice of history and come out to enjoy the acclaimed performance of, “Always a Bridesmaid,” by the Pensacola Little Theatre from November 6-8 and 12-15. Click here for a summary and show times of this amazing comedy.
