History:

Originally founded in 1933, the Alton Little Theater is getting ready to begin its 81st consecutive season. ALT is the longest running community theater in the state of Illinois. With over 450 productions to date, ALT is a vital resource for theater arts and entertainment and takes pride in community partnerships and collaborations with other arts organizations that enrich the lives of those residing in the greater Riverbend area.

It all started in 1933, a young English teacher, Dorothy Colonius, dreamed of creating a Community Theater for Alton - a rather novel aspiration for a young female in those times - but a dream that thankfully grew and flourished with the support of so many of Dorothy's students and fellow educators. Indeed, ALT's early years were forged by educators and talented folks from all works of life. Dorothy became the permanent Artistic Director for her "little" theater group and she remained the driving force behind the theater purchasing property for a permanent home and then expanding. At the time of Dorothy's death in 1979, she bequeathed a modest endowment to sustain the theater's existence. Talented and dedicated fellow educators like Cliff Davenport, Edmund Young, Birdine Groshong and Diana Enloe became the mentors for a whole new generation of theater lovers.
