What We Believe
Duncan Little Theatre’s mission is to provide quality theatrical experiences and to foster the arts in our community.
A BRIEF HISTORY OF DLT
Duncan Little Theatre originated as an activity of the American Association of University Women, who began performing plays in the 1950’s and 1960’s. After a period of inactivity, a group of citizens reformed Duncan Little Theatre in 1981 and DLT was incorporated as a 501 (c3) not-for-profit organization.
Duncan Little Theatre hosted the Oklahoma Community Theatre Association (OCTA) State Festival in 1995, the Regional Southwest America Association of Community Theatres festival in 2001 and is a founding member of OCTA, the oldest community theatre organization west of the Mississippi River. Many DLT veterans have been recognized in OCTA competitions and traveled nationwide to compete.
DLT owns a building at 824 Main Street in Duncan, making us a part of the Main Street community. The facility allows DLT to house the Costume Shoppe and props, provides visibility in the community as well as a place at no additional cost in which to hold rehearsals and other events. In 2005 we added an additional ‘home’ to house our set supplies on Willow where we can also design and build.
Our twentieth anniversary was celebrated in 2001 with a revival of DLT’s first production, “Once Upon A Mattress”. Our thirty-fifth anniversary was celebrated in 2017 with a variety show highlighting many of the plays and musicals performed by DLT. Several original DLT cast members from shows dating back to 1993 to 2016 chose to return to the DLT stage, performing again songs from select shows.
