• Welcome to Northwest Little Theatre!

    Founded in the 2020-2021 school year, NW Little Theatre evolved in the spring of 2022. Our first musical production, Grease, was shared with our community, bringing live theatre to our school. Following the 2021-2022 school year, NW Little Theatre continued to provide performance opportunities with our 2022 fall production of Our Town, and spring production of Footloose. Our third season has began and we are in rehearsals for Into the Woods JR opening February 1-3, 2024. Following our winter musical production, our spring musical production 13 the musical will be held April 25-27. NW Little theatre is committed to providing performance opportunities to all students attending Northwest Middle School.
