The Shreveport Little Theatre (SLT) was established in 1922 and has continued to produce live theatrical productions in the historic Highland neighborhood since that time 101-years ago. It is a non-profit, volunteer-based community organization with a volunteer board of directors. The organization reaches over 20,000 audience members annually, has over 500 season members, and is producing 14 productions this season. Its rich history is unprecedented in American community theatre.
SLT prides itself in being a community theatre that reflects the diversity of the entire community. Our programs are ethnically and racially diverse. African Americans participate in all aspects of SLT. SLTAcademy, open to all students K - 12, targets and engages under-served and high-risk youth from our diverse community. Hundreds of students have already been involved. No one is turned away from SLTAcademy because of an inability to pay. We continue to work with the clients of The Rutherford House, and The Philadelphia Center's Mercy Center, the Volunteers of America's LightHouse Program, and Bossier's Council on Aging.

Charlene Morrison reviewed Shreveport Little Theatre:
"I always know I am going to leave the theater feeling better than when I went in. Everyone just seems to be happy and friendly. There is not a bad seat in the house, and the actors do such a wonderful job. The stage props are done beautifully, the lighting is excellent, and the whole atmosphere is warm and inviting."
