The San Luis Obispo Little Theater's opening performance of A Christmas Story was spectacular! The set was great, the show was entertaining and very professional. The lobby volunteers friendly and complimentary beverages while waiting for opening and intermission was a nice touch. This venue has seating around the stage and all seats are great.

As with all of the plays I've seen at the Little Theatre, The Drowsy Chaperone is fantastically performed! The singing and dancing were top notch, as I've come to expect from these actors. A funny musical with The man in the Chair giving a great narration of the goings on in the show. The audience really gets into the fun... More

I love the San Luis Obispo Little Theater. The productions are varied to provide a great theater experience. Several years ago, the Little Theater added a Martini bar. The evening of the first performance, the bar was open before and during intermission. I fondly remember the loud and excited applause. But the reason I go to the theater is to... More

Every time I've gone (and I'll admit it's not always my choice to go) - EVERY time has been entertaining and fun! The actors, the acting, while not Broadway-venue, is heartfelt, local talent giving you themselves for the evening, at least. QUeue up for cider, coffee, local wine selections and something salty or sweet during the intermission. I guarantee you'll... More

SLO Little Theatre puts on some marvelous plays, including a good many musicals. The amount of top notch, professional quality local acting and directing talent is quite amazing. The theatre itself is cozy and there's no such thing as a poor seat in this fun place.

Eight of us just saw the play "The Foreigner" last Saturday and really had a great time. Easy to park and find a place prior to theatre time for dinner. The theatre has coffee and drinks before the lights are dimmed and there is an intermission of coffee and cookies. We love this cozy theatre and will probably get season... More

We have seen only one production here, but the level of professionalism was certainly as good as or better than other "Little Theatres" we have been to. As might be expected, the theatre is small but the seating is comfortable and every seat has a good view of the stage. The food and drink offerings at intermission could be more... More

As far as small theatre productions go, this is one of the best I have ever attended. The actors are good and made better by a professional director who has been in the business many years.
