A New Adventure

In 1959, Bing Limbaugh ,a former Sikeston student attending college in Memphis and an active participant of the Memphis Little Theatre; met with a group of Sikeston residents interested in starting a theatre group in Sikeston.  The group met , elected a board of board of directors, filed formal incorporation papers, selected the first season selection of plays and Sikeston Little Theatre, aka SLT was born.  In October of 1959, Blithe Spirit was performed at the High School Gym. As the town grew, new schools were built but SLT continued to perform there for 13 years, under the names of Jr High School Gym and Middle School Auditorium.  It is now part of the YMCA.  

Auditions were held in Dr. offices, homes, library basement or where there was space available.  Sikeston Little Theatre would eventually be performing in many different places until a place to call "Home" was built, but that would be many years down the road.
