Bill and Marilyn Brown opened the original Little Brown Theatre in 1998, across the street from their Villa Playhouse Theatre in Springville. Health problems forced the Browns to sell both theaters and the Little Brown closed in 2005. After a six year absence, the Little Brown Theatre reopened in a new location on 28 October 2011. The 50-seat black box theater uses minimal sets and the seating area is flexible to accommodate different shows.
Shortly after Lewiston was settled a theatrical group was formed. In 1884 the people of Lewiston built the Lewiston Opera House. It was used for motion pictures, dances, dramatic productions, basketball games, and roller skating before it was destroyed by fire in 1929.
