Long Description:
According to the Theatre's website:



The Little Theatre of Jamestown was established in 1936 as a non-profit membership corporation. The purpose as described in its by-laws was to present five live stage productions each season, from September to May, on a regular basis for the education and entertainment of the residents of the Jamestown New York and surrounding area. This mission has been accomplished, and the organization is now entering it's 71st season. There is a paid staff consisting of an artistic director, technical director, business manager and office staff. The organization is regulated by a Board of Directors, with nineteen members elected by the membership and serving a three year term.



In 1968 the organization purchased and renovated a downtown Vaudeville theatre which had been closed for five years. It has a 405 seat auditorium and a 30 X 60 foot lobby, a full stage with a fly capability plus office, check room and toilet facilities. Each of the plays are presented for two weekends and the two musicals are presented for three weekends. All productions are open to the public and special group prices are available.



Lucille Ball is Jamestown's most famous local personality, having been born and educated here. Her first acting experience on stage was with our organization. Upon her death, the theatre was renamed in her honor with the family's permission. It now operates as The Lucille Ball Little Theatre of Jamestown, Inc.
