The Butler Little Theatre has entertained
the community since February 1941, making BLT one of the oldest
continuously-operated theaters in Western Pennsylvania.
there are programs dating back to 1921, the Butler Little Theatre
received its official charter in June 1941 with performances at
The Lees Restaurant (tickets were 50 cents!), the Butler High School,
and the Sterling Club. In 1945 the group purchased the carriage
house known as Campbell's Barn, occupied by the John Eisler Inspection
Station. The members themselves remodeled the building at One Howard
Street to make it suitable for theatrical performances and have
continued to add improvements over the years. The theater seats
155 people and presents five shows during its regular season, holds
classes for children, and is one of the oldest continuously-running
community theaters in Western Pennsylvania.
