Thirty Five Years and Still Going Strong
a History of Brunswick Little Theatre
Brunswick Little Theatre is the result of three friends sharing a glass or two of wine and pleasant conversation. Patricia Foy, Stuart Callari, and Gloria Yount were the three women who discovered their mutual love of theater and determined that a community theater was needed in the Southport area in 1983. Within a few months the newly formed company produced its first musical Brigadoon in 1983. This first show was presented in Hatch Auditorium at the Baptist Assembly on Caswell Beach and for several years afterward the company performed and rehearsed in various venues around town, including the Jaycee Building, the Alderman’s chambers at Southport City Hall, the Centennial Center, OWA, and our present home, 8068 River Road.
Thirty three years and hundreds of productions later, Brunswick Little Theatre is still entertaining, educating, and enriching the community by producing plays, musicals, revues and offering workshops involving community members of all ages. BLT is a 501C3 all volunteer organization, governed by a board that is dedicated to promoting theater in Brunswick County, building on the company’s past successes and supporting its promising future.
