Our Story

Theatrical productions in Roswell, New Mexico began in 1939 when Zelma and Paul McEvoy formed a touring company called The Roswell Players. The players produced musical variety shows and melodramas that were performed at rural schoolhouses throughout the area.

World War II closed down The Roswell Players but, in 1947, members of the players who returned to Roswell, New Mexico produced “You Can’t Take It With You.” Although the play was a success, there was little theatrical activity in the decade or so that followed.

It wasn’t until Walker Air Force Base personnel increased that interest in theater grew, and the small group of actors grew with it. In 1958, the group formally organized and the city provided an old building at 1101 North Virginia Avenue for productions.

Today, Roswell Community Little Theatre is proud to produce plays of all kinds in our new building located at 1717 S. Union.
