History of the Little Theatre of Walla Walla
The Little Theatre of Walla Walla first opened in 1944 with their very first play, Yes, My Darling Daughter. The first two performances were held only for personnel of the Air Base and the McGraw Hospital. When their acting was received enthusiastically by their audience, the cast and crew arranged a performance in the Marcus Whitman Hotel a few months later. Soon after this stellar performance, they wrote a letter to the public stating their mission, “To produce good plays well,” and an invitation to join their organization. Due to the warm support of the community, the Little Theatre was able to purchase a venue; the first play performed there was Old War Horse. Numerous other successful performances enabled the now-thriving Little Theatre of Walla Walla to move to their current location, the Garden City Heights World War Veterans Memorial Building. The tireless efforts of its many committed volunteers allowed the the venue to develop into the prosperous attraction that it is today.
