Little Theatre on the Square in Sullivan Illinois

Illinois Amish Country

The Little Theatre on the Square is situated in downtown Sullivan next to the courthouse.


If you travel to the southern edge of Illinois Amish country you will come to the wonderful town of Sullivan.  In Sullivan you will find a close knit community with a strong sense of tradition to their agricultural heritage.

Sullivan is well know for The Little Theatre on the Square.  Opened in 1957 by Guy Little, Sr. this playhouse puts on multiple shows each year and has recently completely remodeled the whole theatre.  Five plays are put on each year from June to August and more shows are added with each passing season.  They even host shows for younger audience members as well.

Sullivan is also the gateway to beautiful Lake Shelbyville located on the southern edge of Sullivan.  During the warmer months this is a draw for hundreds of thousands of visitors and it is no uncommon to see numerous vehicles pulling boats and a Amish buggy in the middle.  The lake is a great source of recreation for locals and visitors alike.

Each fall Sullivan is home to Shotgun Manor, a haunted house located on the square during the Halloween season.  If you are looking for a boo-tiful place to spend a Saturday fright then Shotgun manor is a must. 

While in Sullivan don't forget to visit their downtown square.  Shopping and restaurants adorn the square which surround the Moultrie County courthouse which was built over a hundred years ago.
