Past Shows

The Beginning


The Ionia Community Theatre (ICT), a Michigan non-profit organization, has been dedicated to the presentation of dramatic and musical productions for the Ionia community. It all started in late 1966 with a small handful of drama enthusiasts that held a series of workshops, that led to the performing of three one-act plays on the stage in the third floor ballroom of the Ionia Elks Lodge, 404 West Main Street, Ionia in March, 1967.

During the late 1960's and 1970's, ICT did a variety of dramatic and comedy plays. The first musical "Mr. Scrooge" was produced in 1974 at the First Presbyterian Church in Ionia. In 1981, ICT produced its major musical "Little Mary Sunshine". Since then, a continuous string of successful musicals have been produced in Watt Auditorium at the Ionia Middle School and the Ionia Movie Theatre.
