Do you like to swing a hammer, paint, or add flair to a room or space? If you do, we could use your talents on our Saturday Build Crews! Between productions, we have a team of volunteers meet at the theater on Saturdays starting at 10am ET to help build out, paint, and dress the set for the forthcoming production. No experience necessary, we’re more than happy for the help and have folks willing to train you.

Building & Grounds Committee

Winchester Little Theatre has operated out of an Historic Pennsylvania Railroad Freight Station (circa 1895) since the early 1970’s. We recently purchased a storage facility within the City of Winchester that houses our costumes and set pieces. Both facilities require ongoing maintenance and organization. We welcome volunteers who would like to help us throughout the year to keep our theater alive and active.

Development Committee

Theatre can not survive on ticket sales alone. Contributed income is the largest source of income in any live theatre, but especially so for local, non-profit community theatres like ours. If you’re interested in finding ways to help us connect with the community while raising funds to maintain and improve our historic venue, we’d love to talk about it with you.

Join the WLT for Kids Committee and become part of the family! We meet monthly throughout the year planning our June and July productions - and whether you have kids participating or not, we welcome all areas of interest! We can put you to work assisting with costumes or painting scenery, coaching kids as they learn their lines, planning the opening night party, making props - or just helping us create the magic!!
