Georgetown Little Theatre creates its shows at our Studio, located on Stewarttown Rd. In fact, you can see it at the bottom of the hill, if you are driving on Trafalgar Road!
Originally, this was the location of the old Stewarttown Hall, which GLT acquired from the Town of Halton Hills in 1986. The old hall served as our home until March 30, 1998, when a passer-by noticed smoke coming from the building. Despite the best efforts of the Halton Hills Fire Department, within an hour the old hall was completely engulfed in flames and in a few more hours, nothing was left standing.
Then we rebuilt, with the support of the community. Our new, custom-built Studio was opened on the footprint of the previous Studio in 2002, and is the envy of most other theatre groups in Southern Ontario. It offers a rehearsal space the approximate size of the stage at the John Elliott Theatre, a huge costume collection, and a large shop and storage area where sets can be constructed.
In addition to preparing for our mainstage shows at the JET, we also stage a range of more intimate events at our Studio, which holds an audience of around 60 people. Our Youth Company presents a One Act Play Festival (Y1A’s) and an annual primary performance that is typically sold out through its run. As well, we also present our annual “Studio Shows” in September and the Georgetown Little Improv Club (GLIC) in late summer (or whenever they get the urge to be silly) at our Studio.
