THE STORY:

LITTLE THEATRE ON THE SQUARE INC wrote -

The Little Theatre On The Square in Sullivan, IL is approaching its 60th Anniversary season - 1 year from today! In honor of this milestone, we are kicking off a Capital Campaign that will truly change the face of The Little Theatre On The Square forever! Our total goal is $1.2 Million Dollars and with that we will be installing a Movie Theatre to our space so that we can become an entertainment destination 52 weeks of the year. We will continue our mission to bring top quality Broadway shows with our current schedule and also fill every other week of the year with a mix of First Run Movies, Classic Films, Art Films and movies just for the kids. With your help today, we can make this a reality. We have already raised over $300,000 in cash and pledges. Once we hit that half way mark, the movie theatre becomes a reality.

The Second stage of our campaign changes how we do business as well by providing a new space to build sets, props and costumes as well as creating a costume rental company. We will be able to rent our costumes on the local and national level to high schools, community theatres as well as other professional theatres. This is an exciting piece that will continue to build our business and make us a truly national brand.

The final part of this campaign is for the kids...both young and old. We will be completely restructuring our STAR Education Outreach program into a pre-professional musical theatre training program. We are the ONLY professional theatre in Central Illinois giving our students access to working professionals in the world of musical theatre. Actors, Directors, Casting Agents and more will be coming to Sullivan to work with your kids to truly prepare them for making their way into showbiz! We will focus on correct technique and terminology of dance as well as great new drama program and voice lessons to fully round out the Professional Musical Theatre Experience. You will not find another education program like this in our area. Plus your students will still have the two STAR student musicals each year as well as access to audition for main-stage musicals throughout the year.
