Located in historic Junction City, Kansas, our mission is to enrich, educate, and entertain our regional community by providing quality theatrical experiences.
The Junction City Little Theater began in 1948, the under the vision and guidance of Bettina Coover. Coover was a vibrant intelligent, and imaginative woman who became an integral part of a community wherever she lived.
In 1955, Bettina Coover, Betty Cleary, Mona Kessinger, and Alma Hornbaker signed the documents of incorporation creating the Junction City Little Theater.
The early productions were staged in schools, auditoriums and churches, which created significant lighting and scenery challenges. In 1960, the Little Theater moved to the 18th street location, renting the building form the city. Before the city acquired the building, it had been the USO for Colored Troops.
