little independent theatre

little independent theatre (LIT) is the oldest offering of LIA and has been active in the Triangle area of NC, previously engaging in projects in the Raleigh, Cary, and Holly Springs areas. We are excited about our move into the Triad, and are working in the spaces at Creative Greensboro and surrounding areas.

We offer a variety of options for theatrical interests.
Those opportunities include:

Our Next Production

Our next performance project will be an arts-integrated production of Impressionism by Michael Jacobs.
Working with visual artists, choreographers, composers, and a team of directors and technicians, we are excited to bring the arts together in a collaborative project.
