All our shows use Open Casting, with no roles pre-selected. RLT is committed to diversity, open to non-traditional casting, and will consider actors of all ethnicities.

Rockville Little Theatre is an all volunteer organization that presents classic favorites and contemporary treasures from famous dramatic names and some not-so-famous. We take to the stage in the F. Scott Fitzgerald Theatre. Although our name says "Little", the quality of our performances is anything but.
