Alton Little Theater announces the 84th Season with six mainstage shows scheduled at the Showplace. Tickets for the core season at the oldest community theater in the state of Illinois are on sale with EXTRA Early-Bird Savings prices in the month of March.
The Season Includes TWO bookend Musicals....a new Comedy Musical just promoted by the American Association of Community Theaters: BINGO, THE MUSICAL (September 8th - 17th) and the Classic tale of love, honor & chivalry, CAMELOT (May 11th-20th, 2018). In between are FOUR very different and entertaining comedies: THE 39 STEPS (a Hitchcock spoof a la Monty Python) - playing October 20th -29th, A NICE FAMILY CHRISTMAS (a Family in DysFUNtion), playing December 1st - 10th, WHO'S IN BED WITH THE BUTLER? (hailed as one of the best farces ever written!), playing February 9th thru 18th, 2018, and EXIT LAUGHING, (a hilarious comedy about the enduring strength of friendship) playing March 11th- 20th, 2018.
THREE tiers of pricing exist this season for tickets and expanded box office hours were created to help patrons have greater access to live operators. Tickets prices are $70 for a season ticket thru April 2nd, $75 from April 3rd thru May 31st, and still-a-bargain-$80 June 1st through September 16th. Buyers save at least 33% to 40% off Door sales prices. Patrons can choose from nine performances of each production and Season Ticket holders face no upcharge for switching night of attendance (as long as seats are available). ALL Tickets for ALL productions are available individually and as a SEASON Package on the Website (altonlittlehteater.org) and through the Box Office line.
