For 57 years, Georgetown Little Theatre (GLT) has presented high quality, live theatre, right here in Georgetown (and sometimes, Acton)! The company truly is a cultural institution in Halton Hills. It creates three main stage shows per season, in November, February and April, as well as other smaller shows and events throughout the year.
Georgetown Little Theatre had its beginning in an amateur theatricals evening class that was held at the Georgetown District High School during the winter and spring of 1959-60. In 1981, the John Elliott Theatre (JET) opened and since then, the John Elliott Theatre has been the home theatre space for GLT. In 2011, the JET closed for renovations and GLT moved its mainstage performances to Acton Town Hall through the 2012 and 2013 seasons.
With the renovations completed, GLT moved back into the JET for the 2013-2014 seasons. We are now at over 100 productions in the JET and counting! Georgetown Little Theatre is a member of
Theatre Ontario and the Association of Community Theatres for Central Ontario (ACT-CO).
Each year, as part of the ACTCO festival, GLT participates with many other community theatre groups to have their productions adjudicated by a theatre professional. Outstanding achievements are recognized with the “THEA’” award, at the annual ACT-CO gala. GLT is proud to have been nominated for and won, many THEA’s over the years, as we strive to bring you high quality, entertaining, live local theatre. But the best awards always come from our appreciative audiences! Without you, there is no show.
