Organized in 1922, Little Theatre of Wilkes-Barre (known from its inception to 1928 as the Drama League or Club) began its first season in 1923 with the production of Rudyard Kipling’s “The Elephant’s Child,” directed by Mollie Weston Kent. Little Theatre was incorporated as a non-profit, 501(c) 3 Corporation by decree of Judge Valentine on June 17, 1929. Little Theatre of Wilkes-Barre made its home at the 537 N. Main Street Playhouse in 1957. The building, an old movie theatre, was purchased in 1956 and renovated for theatrical stage use. In 1972, because of renewed federal and state interest in the fine arts, the Pennsylvania Theatre Association approved the building for production, and remarked on the splendid facilities of the stage and equipment.
