The mission of the PLAT is to provide a quality theatre environment for the performance arts community.

Our History

This Grand Lady (Pontiac’s Little Art Theatre a.k.a the “PLAT”) was born in 1868. This three-story building is listed in Pontiac’s historical records as “the TURK building” and categorized as a “GRO” establishment — the local grocery/dry goods store. The business survived 41 years until its last record in 1909.

“I describe it as a very interesting, charming, and warm high-class venue.  I have personally enjoyed many film, musical, and original theatrical presentations there as well as some civic meetings which were not so enjoyable (no fault of the venue).”
