Here at Rome Little Theatre, we are counting our blessings and you, our patrons, are at the top of that list! Since our 1956-57 season, Rome Little Theatre has offered continuous, live, community theatre in Rome. We appreciate the part you play in this legacy, and want you to know we are thankful for your continued support.


We know the end of the year is a time when many people look back at what organizations have impacted their lives through the year, and give financial support. As we celebrate our 60th anniversary season, it would mean so much if you could make a one-time $60 donation – help us reach 600 donations! RLT has big plans for the next 60 years and we need your help to make them happen.




Here are some important dates to add to your 2017 calendar:

January 4 & 24: RLT Senior Theatre Workshops begin
January 14 5:00pm – FREE Showing of A Raisin In The Sun immediately followed by a Symposium titled: A Conversation On Race Relations
January 20-22 – Clybourne Park – ONE WEEKEND ONLY
February 10-19 – You’re A Good Man, Charlie Brown
February 11-12 – AUDITIONS for 9 to 5 the Musical

For more information on any of these exciting events, or to donate to RLT, you can call the RLT office at 706-295-7171.

We are excited about all 2017 will bring and look forward to seeing you at the theatre!
