There are a number of options in Alexandria for theater productions. This is the very best, with high quality productions matched by excellent choices of the what they present. The theater is intimate, cozy and brings you up close and personal with the actors. The cast and crew, while all non-professionals, put their hearts and souls into every production.

Fabulous community theater! Shows vary but the quality level is consistently high. Intimate theatre setting. A wonderful experience of the local theater scene. Much cheaper than the Kennedy Center. Makes a fun evening out.

A perfect experience for local theater in a good facility with easy street parking. Season passes available, matinees and evening shows. Musicals, comedies and some dramas. Local theater at its best. They also support the community with special nights benefiting local organizations from cat Shelters to women's groups. Thank you for that and a rollicking good time.

Nice, small theatre. Comfortable seating. Great performance by local crew and non-professional actors. The place was booked solid and the actors were given a standing ovation. Particularly impressed with two leads who were on stage for almost the entire play. Nice room off to the side had refreshments with a small sign telling you how much to leave for the... More

This little theatre is truly fabulous. The caliber of the actors is incredible, and while some of their plays are a bit racy for my husband and me, we have enjoyed several shows here over time. I always love their A Christmas Carol performance each year!

If you have a hankering for a personal and up-close engagement with a wonderful little theater, this is the one for you! We just attended our second show in two months. Parking is available on the street nearby or in garages several blocks away. Beautiful old town neighborhood area all around. Not a bad seat in the house. Enjoy!

The Little T of Alexandria is a true gem. With SO many theater opportunities in the northern VA/DC metro area, the "LToA" provides an intimate venue for quality entertainment at very reasonable prices. As on street parking in crowded Alexandria is often difficult (LToA doesn't have its own lot) recommend going to see a weekend matinee performance. This will give... More

Loved that they put on a very good productions for a small local theater. We say several plays there and they were very good. The audience is mainly older patrons, not too many younger people though. It is too bad because the cast does a great job.
