Marshall Dahlin 1920 -2009 Marshall's greatest love was his involvement with the Lucille Ball Little Theatre of Jamestown. After seven decades of acting, directing and being the business manager for our busy theatre he retired in May of 2009. He and his late wife Virginia shared a love for the theater and the theatre has named the auditorium where the public attends performances "The Marshall and Virginia Dahlin Auditorium" in their honor. The Little Theatre of Jamestown held a tribute service on June 20, 2009 recognizing his 70 years of service to the theater. During his involvement in the theater he was a member of the Theater Association of New York State, the American Association of Community Theaters and had attended the Shaw Theater on Niagara on the Lake, Ontario.
Samuel Paladino 1924-2012 Without the efforts put forth by Mr. Paladino, our Little Theatre may not have been in the position we are in today. We will miss our dear friend and colleague. He was one of the greatest performers in LBLTJ history.
Lucille Miller 1926-2022 Lucy’s involvement with the theatre spanned decades. In addition to her involvement with our main stage season, she, along with Helen Merrill, founded the Jr. Guilders organization in 1982. Lucy would spend 35+ years volunteering her time to work with local youth and travel all over the US and to Europe with the children’s theatre group. Thank you, Lucy, for everything you did for the organization and the community. You were truly one of a kind and will be greatly missed by all of us who were lucky enough to have had you in our lives.

What Our audiences Are Saying
-> We are so impressed with the quality of these shows. Come see for yourselves!
-> Very nice experience and tons of talent!
-> Great place for large entertainment on a small scale. I have been to several different shows over the years and even was in a couple of them many years ago. The quality of performances is still very high.
-> Loved all my years spent at little theater. It was my home away from home. I continue to wish them a very prosperous future and pray the lights will always be on. I don't think people realize what a gem this is in our community.
