The expansion of Alton Little Theater is moving forward with a capitol campaign.  The Board of Directors recently voted to take the next step in the process that began with consultant work and public meetings over the last year, and will now work to raise $2.5 million for a new theater building that will provide more seats, little or no steps, and more room in front of and behind the curtain.
