Mr. Little returned to Sullivan in time to remodel the balcpny of the theatre, removing the old pro- ~ e c t l o n booth and elevating the seats; and in- stalling a new curved stage curtain-all to celebrate the opening of the 12th season in Sullivan.
Lung before. Mr. Little opened the Grand Theatre back m 1957 he hoped and planned that someda he wouid have a theatre where musicals andf plays could be presented. He got his f i rs t job tn professional theatre as an ap- prentice a t the Keens, New Hampshire Summer Theatre i n 1951 and worked the two following summers a t the Gateway Musical Playhouse near Atlantic City.
After raduation from the University of Miami, B r . Little took graduate courses a t Columbia University and The American Theatre Wing before satuamng to central Illinois in the spring of 1957 t o look for a theatre location.
Not having success locating a suitable theatre i n . any of the Iar e r cities in downstate Illi- nols. Mr. Little lecided to lease the movie house in his native Sullivan. Since the opening of Brigadoon on J.uly 3, 1957, Mr. Little has presented 112 major productions-both plays and musical t i fea tur ing many outstanding stars and supporting casts from Broadway. Hollywood, T V and Opera. The first season ran nine weeks and had an attendance of 8000. The Little Theatre-On The Square was 'open for twenty-four weeks last year and had an at- tendance of 80.000. . .a most gratifying in- crease! The Little T'heatre-OR. The Square also has a Ch~ldren's Theatre a h ~ c h presents pro- ductions for young audiences on Saturdays dur- ing late June, July and August. Mr. Little strongly believes that stock should be a prov- ing-ground and workshop for young talent to develop as actors-singers-dancers and technicians Thirty outstanding apprentices are accepted each
