Since 1938, Alameda Little Theatre Inc. has been presenting live theater in Alameda. In 1957 the company acquired an abandoned grocery store on High Street and turned it into the Altarena Playhouse, where we have been presenting creative, intimate, and artistically ambitious stagings of plays, musicals and revues ever since. Our inclusive and welcoming atmosphere makes Altarena a great place to go? for patrons and a great place to work? for artists. From re-envisioning the classics to promoting new works, our critically-acclaimed productions and our educational outreach programs foster greater appreciation and understanding of the theater arts in Alameda and throughout the Bay Area.
