Fund A Need: Capital Fund for Renovations
Looking forward to the future of Boise Little Theater, we are renovating our house seating, stage curtains, and carpeting. We would also like to transform the rehearsal hall where children’s theater classes are held into a black box space to produce more community theater. We would greatly appreciate anything you can contribute.

Thank you!


THANK YOU ALL for making our Little heart grow during Idaho Gives. Together you raised $6,164 for Boise Little Theater and over $3.8 MILLION for Idaho nonprofits organizations! WOW. Thanks from the bottom of our hearts!

In honor of Wendy Koeppl’s 25th show at BLT, we’re had an After Party on the opening night of “Five Women Wearing the Same Dress” by Alan Ball, 4/16. Thanks to everyone who celebrated with Wendy and her entourage, walked our red carpet, and enjoyed cake and a champagne toast! We appreciate everyone who helped make it happen.

Enjoy our new Spotify playlist representing our 73rd season:


Boise Little Theater (BLT) is a volunteer-organized non-profit organization with an unwavering dedication to quality amateur theater. For over 70 years BLT has produced plays in all genres: contemporary and classical, comedy, drama, and musicals. BLT is the longest-running community theater in Idaho. BLT uses theatre arts to enrich lives in our community by presenting different perspectives to promote empathy and encourage laughter, critical thinking, physical activity, and fellowship.

Before the pandemic, our organization had served our Treasure Valley for 72 years providing up to 7 shows a season plus one production with young adults in conjunction with Boise Parks and Recreation. In a typical season, over 12,000 people attended shows at Boise Little Theater. Our nonprofit has relied heavily on ticket sales, but donations and alternative revenue sources are vital to our organization now, but so is greater community involvement. We are temporarily closed due to the COVID-19 quarantine order enacted by Idaho Governor Little, but you can still reach our box office at 208-342-5104 or boxoffice@boiselittletheater.orgYou can also visit BLT on Facebook, or attend a volunteer meeting. Whether you are interested in acting, directing, working backstage, or ushering, we always welcome new volunteers. Meetings are held on the 3rd Monday of every month at 7:00 pm (except June, July, August, and December).

Theater is about relationships. Our art elicits empathy, asks for reflection, expects change, and requires cooperation. Theater is for everyone.
