About Us

Our Mission

 

To engage, educate, and involve members of the community in high quality theatrical productions.

 


 

Our History

 

Slidell Little Theatre has enchanted audiences in St. Tammany Parish since 1963.  It was founded by volunteers who recognized the need for live theatre on the Northshore.  Over the years, it has produced nearly 350 Main Stage shows.  Volunteers from all walks of life unite to build sets, design costumes, choreograph, and act in theatrical productions which brings music, drama, and laughter to the Northshore.

Before finding a home at 2024 Nellie Drive, next to the Fremaux Town Center, SLT performances were held at high school gyms, the city auditorium and a remodeled church.  Today, SLT's state-of-the-art facility houses two stages, the Main Stage and the Allen L. Little Stage.

 


 

What We Do

 

SLT offers Main Stage musicals, dramas, and comedies; the Theatre for Young Audiences (TYA) program which features popular children's plays, the Senior Actors Theatre (SATS) programs for our 50+ actors; several fundraiser events; and our summer season focused to educate children from 4-years old through High School Seniors in our Young Actors Theatre of Slidell (YATS) program.

Slidell Little Theatre is a 501(c) (3) nonprofit, all volunteer organization.  It showcases the on stage and off stage talents of nearly 400 area residents, entertaining approximately 10,000 adults and children each season.  All talent is local and all positions, whether on stage or off, are open to the public.

Memberships are the financial lifeline of SLT. It is through this support that Slidell Little Theatre is able to fulfill its mission. If you are not already a member, we invite you to support the performing arts by investing in your community theatre and becoming a valued patron of Slidell Little Theatre.
