  To our patrons and friends,

We all hope that you and your loved ones are safe and healthy during these troubling times. As with many other small businesses, the outbreak of COVID-19 has led us to an increasingly dire financial situation. Being an arts organization that mostly operates on the income of ticket sales, and with the prospect of safely reopening being pushed ever further back, DLT faces an uncertain future. While we have been fortunate to receive many generous donations from our patrons, we must seek many more in order to survive the rest of this pandemic. Without your support, the rich 87 year history of Dover Little Theater will come to an end. While we continue to search for ways to bring our service to the community, we desperately ask that you consider donating to keep our little theater alive through this crisis. 

Please donate below:

Thank you for supporting our little theatre, and we hope to see you back at DLT as soon as we can safely open. 


Larry Pelham

President, DLT

Announcing a new monologue series from DLT!

As we enter this new and uncertain year, we want to hear and give voice to the thoughts, worries and hopes from the young people of our local communities. For the next month, we will be accepting monologue submissions from student writers throughout the tri-state area. The board of DLT will then select a number of these monologues to be performed virtually by actors. 

The writing prompt for this monologue is, “What comes next...”

You can write this monologue from the perspective of the present, or from a future perspective looking back.

You do not have to include the prompt in your monologue and it can be written in your own voice, or in the voice of a character you create. 

The monologue can be of any length.

To be eligible, the writer must be below the age of 21 and reside within the tri-state area.

What we hope from these monologues are honest messages from those who will one day inherit the issues we face now and tomorrow.

If you are a young writer who lives in the tri-state area or know of one who would like to see their writing performed, please fill out the form using the link below. 

If you have any questions, please contact us at
