Hometown of The Little Theatre On The Square Comes To Rescue After Storm

On Monday, July 19, just 48 hours prior to the opening of “Annie” at The Little Theatre On The Square in Sullivan, Illinois, a storm with winds clocking over 100 mph attempted to topple the small town. While no damage was done to the theatre, company housing and rehearsal studio did sustain over $200,000 in major structural and water damage. Cast members had to be relocated to hotels 30 minutes out of town, along with the theatres’ costume shop being moved to nearby Millikin University. With the help and support of the Central Illinois community, the show opened as scheduled Wednesday, July 21. To assist with the repairs of the company housing and studio, and the theatre’s neighbors in need, the Cast of ANNIE collected for “The Orphans Of The Storm” raising $4200.
