The Winchester Little Theatre (WLT) was organized in 1929 “…to present, produce and encourage the production, acting and writing of plays…” by a group of persons interested in providing an outlet for their artistic interests and bringing to the community entertainment and culture. The WLT operates in the former Pennsylvania Railroad freight station at 315 West Boscawen Street in Winchester.
