Welcome to

ALTON LITTLE THEATER

“GREAT theater is about challenging how we think and encouraging us to fantasize about a world we aspire to.”

Willem Dafoe, American Actor

“Art is how we express our humanity, in all its dimensions. Through Art, we descend to the depths of our human natures and rise to the heights and everything in between. Theater, Music, Dance, Festivals, Galleries – ALL have had to cancel shows, ALL are hurting. Donations, Gift Certificates, Advance Ticket purchases –are ALL so needed. Without an audience, there is, eventually, no Art. YOU can be that audience.”

Margaret Atwood, Author
