Inspiring Community & Youth

with Heartfelt Live Theatre

Welcome to Our Stage

Created in 1931, The Clemson Little Theatre is one of the oldest community theatres in South Carolina. ​Originally started by friends of Clemson University, many of its early productions (even into the 1970s) were ​performed in buildings on and around campus. Since 1992, CLT has made its home in its own theatre, the ​Pendleton Playhouse in lovely and historic Pendleton, SC.

Bonus Show Up Next: Belles… More Busted Than Ever

By Ginny McKinney

Directed by Danna Briggs

Due to unforeseen circumstances, Belles... More Busted Than Ever

has been cancelled. If you already have tickets, our office will be in touch.

The lively characters from last season’s Busted Wedding Belles return to create ​more matrimonial mischief and merriment. Can wedded bliss survive a happy ​widow, a woman with a secret, a twice-divorced perpetual dater, a modern ​spinster cat lady, and other eccentrics? Whatever the answer, laughter is ​guaranteed along the way.

Who we are and what we value...

Community Focused

We are committed to engaging the ​community to partner with us in our mission ​to produce high-quality live theatre, whether ​that’s on stage, back stage, or in the ​audience.

Youth Involvement

Students play an important role in our ​theatre, and we focus on the youth in our ​community by producing at least two CAYT ​shows each season, in which students in ​grades 5-12 have substantial involvement.

Appreciation for Live Arts

We desire to cultivate appreciation for ​live theatre in our patrons and ​participants through a variety of show ​offerings, season membership, and a ​welcoming atmosphere.

CLT also accepts special donations.
