Susan Slept Here (1965)

Susan Slept Here (1965)


Since 1956, when a local community group got together to perform their first play, local talent from all walks of life have stepped up to the task of creating a place where thousands have been entertained by musicals, dramas, comedies, and mysteries.

Early productions were staged at Kathleen Bankston Elementary School. The present 200 seat playhouse at 707 Sycamore St. was built in 1967 and named the W.M. Whittington Jr. Playhouse, for President Emeritus Bill Whittington.

Greenwood Little Theatre has entertained and enriched the lives of the residents of our community and surrounding areas, providing a venue through which those who have an interest in theater can, through participation in productions, find an outlet for their creative talents and spirit. For those who would rather enjoy the show from the audience, we provide some of the best live amateur theater in Mississippi.

We are proud of our history and our commitment to quality entertainment, and we invite you to be a part of our continued success! We welcome you, whether onstage, backstage, or as a faithful member of our audience.
