We especially like the children plays. The 8 year old twins like the entertainment and the fact that they usually are able to get autographs of the players. We have been to some adult plays as well and enjoy the experience.

A little bit biased because NY city-based daughter occasionally does a show here .... however, the quality of the show is always excellent. Actors are top-notch, and production value is always first-rate. I am hearing impaired and still have no problem with sound quality. It is well worth the trip to the small town of Sullivan in central Illinois!

Originally opened in 1924 as a movie theater, it was in 1957 that Guy S. Little, Jr., came up with the brilliant idea of renting out... More

Professional theater for a very inexpensive price. Lots of variety. They even had SWING, an all dance performance. Great Christmas shows too. Gas to St Louis or Chicago would alone pay for 2 tickets. Quite a bargin. See also Kirkland Fine Arts Center in Decatur,IL and Kramer Center in Champaign,IL.

We saw the performance of Swing today and it was excellent! The cast was superb, both in the singing and the dancing. I have seen shows in both Vegas and New York and the quality of this small town production was equal to the big city shows for a fraction of the price. Tickets for seniors was $35. We purchased...

I have seen three shows here this summer (Mary Poppins, Hairspray, and Swing), and every one has been simply incredible. These are BROADWAY QUALITY shows. If you have never been, I hope you'll attend a summer show. If you are hungry, try Lucky's, Los Potros, and TNT on the square or The Red Apple on south Route 32.
