The SLO Little Theatre has been up and running for decades here in SLO Town. It is a small theater and all the seats are good. The actors are surprisingly talented and good. I've enjoyed every play I've seen there.

I love this theater. Every seat is up close and personal and the productions are very professional and well done on such a small stage. Book early though because since it is such a small theater, shows sell out quickly.

What a great start to the holiday season! The kids, child actors, in this play were absolutely awesome. The narration was great, the sets were great. This is a must see, if you can still get tickets.

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
