Wigan Little Theatre
Enjoy the feeling of satisfaction as the curtain falls each
evening on another successful production.
Welcome to Wigan Little Theatre
Due to unforeseen circumstances, we have had to make a slight alteration to our 2015/16 Season.
"Salt of the Earth" has had to be removed and will be replaced by bringing forward "Be My Baby" to start its run on 24th February. Our new play for April will be the comedy "Sign of the Times" written by Tim Firth, author of "Calendar Girls".
WLT has been providing first class entertainment for audiences for well over 60 years and we are confident that the new programming for this season will please our patrons as usual.
People who have already booked and require changes or refunds will be contacted by the Box Office in due course and as soon as possible. Please bear with us while we sort out the booking system.
Online booking will be rectified by 16th November.
We apologise for any inconvenience.

"I would just like to put on record our appreciation for the warm welcome we received last evening at the wonderful Wigan Little Theatre. From the moment we picked up our tickets, to the time we had to reluctantly leave, we had a marvellous time. The play was excellent and the quality of the acting was sublime, as usual. Please pass on our best wishes and congratulations to all concerned for a thoroughly fabulous evening. You all deserve much success. We look forward to next season with relish." Mr & Mrs P Fowler
