Make No Little Plans

The town of Sullivan may be the home of the biggest little theatre in the country.

The Little Theatre on the Square, a professional company in this central Illinois city of 4,300, draws tens of thousands of visitors each year from all over the Midwest, and in 2005 topped the USA Today's list of "10 great places to see the lights way off Broadway."

But it's not just audiences that are crossing state boundaries to get to the Little Theatre. Nationally known actors and actresses have also made appearances here, such as Alan Alda, Mickey Rooney and Betty Grable.


16 East Harrison St., Sullivan, IL 61951
