Begun 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 1960s) 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 and also produces Clemson Area Youth Theatre (CYAT).

You Can’t Take It with You
By Moss Hart and George S. Kaufman
Directed by Rebecca Evatt
Kaufman and Hart’s comic masterpiece set during America’s Great Depression proves you might as well enjoy life because you can’t take it with you. So The Vanderhof family pursue their various hobbies such as collecting snakes, ballet dancing, candy making, xylophone practice and sculpting. This classic is a triumph of freedom, love, and FIREWORKS.
Bridge to Terabithia
By Steve Liebman, Katherine Paterson, Stephanie S. Tolan
Directed by Sybil Todd
This powerful musical has the warmth and emotional intensity of Katherine Paterson’s Newbery Award novel. Jesse, alienated from his rural family upbringing, dreams of becoming someone special. Leslie, the new girl from the city, an “outsider,” opens a world of imagination, art, and literature for him. They create Terabithia, a fantasy kingdom where both feel safe from others as their friendship grows. Tragedy strikes, but the strength gained in Terabithia takes Jesse forward and lets him share the magic of his dreams.
Directed by Stu Adamo & Paul Hyde
Get your holiday cheer on with this madcap comedy! Behind the scenes of a struggling theatre’s annual slapdash production of A Christmas Carol, rehearsals are at a standstill. Tim is no longer Tiny, Scrooge wants to do the play in Spanish (Feliz Navidad), and their funding is on hold pending an inspection. To top it off, a case of mistaken identity makes for a night at the theatre that is anything but show business as usual.

The Odd Couple – Female Version
