Funny, sincere, and just a wee bit naughty!

When Annie's husband John dies of leukemia, she and best-friend Chris resolve to raise money for a new settee in the local hospital waiting room. They manage to persuade four fellow Women’s Institute (WI) members to pose nude with them for an "alternative" calendar, with a little help from hospital porter and amateur photographer Lawrence. The news of the women's charitable venture spreads like wildfire, and hordes of press soon descend on the small village of Knapeley in the Yorkshire Dales. The calendar is a success, but Chris and Annie's friendship is put to the test under the strain of their new-found fame.

Tacoma Little Theatre makes you a part of the mob with On Stage for Murder at The Social Bar and Grill. Directed by Karen Christensen and written by Paula Hilton, this murder mystery dinner experience will have you guessing who the killer could be.

Ready to see a murder mystery? This troupe wants to perform, but their micro-managing obsessive-compulsive control-freak director, Diedre, has a problem with the show. Watch her leading man struggle with his lines as Diedre mouths along. Watch her leading lady struggle with her dress as Diedre flaunts her imported finery. Watch her choo-choo man, her French maid, her ex-husband and the owner of the restaurant explode as she stops the show to hold open auditions. And what happens when the final curtain drops? You might just see these seasoned actors change direction, and write their own deadly ending.

Dinner includes: Appetizer, Salad, Main Entrée (Meat, Chicken, Vegetarian/Gluten Free) & Dessert. Coffee, Tea, Water and Soda are included, and alcohol is available for purchase at the bar or from your server.

ON STAGE FOR MURDER will run October 10-13, 2019. Thursday-Saturday performances will begin at 7:30pm, and the Sunday performance will begin at 3:00pm. The event is held at The Social Bar and Grill, 1715 Dock Street, Tacoma, WA. RESERVATIONS ARE REQUIRED.

Tickets are $55.00 per person (includes dinner with gratuity and show) and may be purchased by clicking here, or by calling our Box Office at (253) 272-2281.

OUTSIDE MULLINGAR - An Off the Shelf reading

TLT Outside Mullingar.png

Thursday, September 19, 2019 at 7:30pm

Tacoma Little Theatre's Off the Shelf program is excited to present John Patrick Shanley’s, Outside Mullingar, directed by Curt Hetherington and featuring some of the Pacific Northwest’s finest actors. This production will play Thursday, September 19, 2019 at 7:30pm.

Anthony and Rosemary are two introverted misfits straddling 40. Anthony has spent his entire life on a cattle farm in rural Ireland, a state of affairs that—due to his painful shyness—suits him well. Rosemary lives right next door, determined to have him, watching the years slip away. With Anthony’s father threatening to disinherit him and a land feud simmering between their families, Rosemary has every reason to fear romantic catastrophe. But then, in this very Irish story with a surprising depth of poetic passion, these yearning, eccentric souls fight their way towards solid ground and some kind of happiness. Their journey is heartbreaking, funny as hell, and ultimately deeply moving. Outside Mullingar is a compassionate, delightful work about how it’s never too late to take a chance on love.

Outside Mullingar features the talents of: Peter Cook (Tony), Jed Slaughter (Anthony), Brynne Garman (Aoife), and Alyson Soma (Rosmary).

Tickets for the September 19, 2019 performance at 7:30pm are $10.00 for non TLT Members, and FREE for those who are members. Tickets may be purchased online at, or by calling our Box Office at (253) 272-2281.


We know that there is a tremendous amount of wonderful theatre that deserves to be heard but sometimes just doesn’t get an opportunity. With “Off the Shelf”, local directors and actors will be bringing some scripts to life that we hope you will find entertaining, challenging and educational to our stage. We hope that you’ll sit back and enjoy an evening of theatre. You never know, you might see one of these shows on our mainstage in the future.



Audition to be a part of this hilarious Christmastime comedy.

Everything’s coming up roses
A crowning achievement in American musical theatre, Gypsy tells the story of Mama Rose, the ultimate stage mother, and her hopes and dreams for her daughters, June and Louise. As the lights of Vaudeville are dimming, Louise steps into the spotlight as Gypsy Rose Lee and rises to become one of the most famed burlesque performers of all time. Just like Mama Rose, Gypsy is brassy, bold, and sexy.

Fools Play is excited to be back at Tacoma Little Theatre for a fourth consecutive season! Tacoma’s monthly recurring Improv show. Tickets only $10. This Tacoma staple is a must-see. 

The cast of Fools Play has two rules: Have Fun and Be Fearless.  They take those rules and perform two longform improvised stories full of characters, drama, and humor. For 20-40 minutes, during each story, inspired by each other and you, we get to inhabit the lives of characters in worlds familiar or strange for an epic journey or an intimate glimpse. Entirely improvised, we never know what will happen, but we do know we love discovering these stories.

No two stories are ever the same and infinite new stories are just waiting to be found.  

Each show will be approximately one and a half hour long including a mid-show intermission. Concessions, including alcoholic beverages will be available for purchase from Tacoma Little Theatre.  

Material is unscripted and uncensored. Recommended for mature-minded audiences.
