Boise Little Theater
Idaho’s longest-running, volunteer-oriented, community theater!
Theater is about relationships. Our art elicits empathy, asks for reflection, expects change, and requires cooperation. Theater is for everyone.
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.
Our organization had served our Treasure Valley for 75 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.

Donate to causes you care about!
Boise Little Theater is planning to transform our rehearsal hall where children’s theater classes are taught into a black box space to produce more community theater. You can earmark your donation for this renovation, for a new BLT Star in our lobby, or one of our scholarship funds. Without an in-person audience to buy refreshments at intermission, these funds are not supporting our Student Club scholars as before we were shut down. We would greatly appreciate anything you can contribute.
Visit our Facebook photo album of renovation photos and videos.

Want to see your script turn into a live show at BLT?
Boise Little Theater is accepting script submissions for our next season and beyond! We are very interested in finding new, diverse directors, cultivating new talent, and pushing the envelope. We now have a black box theater that is designed for more intimate productions that may not translate to our main stage. We are looking for readings, scripts that need to be workshopped, shows with minimal set requirements or that are better suited for a smaller space. We want to read scripts!!
Please scan this QR code or visit our digital script submission form to let us know what you’d like to see in our upcoming seasons!
Don’t have a script in mind, but would like to direct a show at BLT?
Jump in our director pool by completing this brief form or scanning the QR code. Directors are not tied to script submissions any longer so we are creating a pool of directing candidates for those times that a community member suggests a great script but doesn’t have an interest in directing it, or a director submits a script that BLT would like to produce but for any number of reasons would like a different director for the show. Having a more diverse pool of talented, experienced directors will help BLT make better theater!
Thanks for your interest in making theater with BLT.
Our nonprofit has relied heavily on ticket sales, and while donations and alternative revenue sources are vital to our organization now, so is greater community involvement.
