As a 503(c) Non-Profit Organization, the Ilion Little Theatre relies solely on the money brought in from our theatrical performances, special fundraisers, and donations from the kind, theatre-going public in the community.
After almost a century of entertaining Central New York audiences, our building needs structural repairs, most notably, the tower and main roof. Temporary repairs are in place, but corrective measures are critical in maintaining the brick-and-mortar integrity of the building and prevent further damage. There is significant cracking and foundation deterioration to the tower that, left unchecked, will eventually cause serious structural damage. Your most recent donations enabled us to repair the leaking back roof, including the replacement of water damaged rafter beams. We are greatly appreciative.
The historical status of the Ilion Little Theatre means that repairs to the building must be respective to the property’s historic character, adding to the complication and cost of such repairs. We rely on the proceeds from our regular season to cover production costs and the day-to-day operating expenses which leaves very little left over. We will continue to offer special fundraising activities and explore grant funding opportunities, but we need your continued generosity and support.

Adopting an Ilion Little Theatre Poster
The Ilion Little Theatre Club’s history is alive and well – right on its very walls.
Throughout the years, the Ilion Little Theatre has put on hundreds of productions, each of those productions memorialized in the form of its poster, which continue to hand on the theatre’s walls. Some of our posters date back to as early as the 1930s.
Each of these posters is framed and preserved using money from the 50/50 raffles conducted at each performance. Many posters are preserved and dedicated by anyone who would like to dedicate a piece of history to a friend or loved one.
If you are interested in adopting an Ilion Little Theatre Poster, check out our wall or poster file on your next visit to see a show.
Then, simply mail in a check for $100 (covering cost of restoration, framing and plaque creation), made out to Ilion Little Theatre at PO Box 435, Ilion, NY 13357, ATTN: Posters. Make sure to include what you would like your dedication plaque to read.
Within a short amount of time, your dedication will accompany a piece of local theatre history, adorning the walls of the theatre for all to see.
