Little Lake Theatre

500 Lakeside Drive South

History :

"Let's find a barn and put on a show," declared Mickey, Judy and the gang in one or more musicals of the 1940's. Although not quite in those words, a similar proposition was offered by Will Disney, Little Lake's Founding Director, to a group of theatre friends interested in developing a "straw hat" theatre. He found the barn on the McDowell Farm by Canonsburg Lake just yards from Route 19 and Little Lake Theatre was created in 1949. The original stage, surrounded by folding chairs, was located in the center of the barn floor, forming the area's first theater-in-the-round. The small silo, currently overlooking the entrance road, was, at that time, located just outside the barn door and served as the box office.

This is a great venue to see quite a variety of theater by local talent. Intermission is made special when you get served your favorite dessert

Parking is in a bumpy field. Seating is Spartan. Performances are good, and performed in the round.
