WGIL Newsroom . Local News 227

Orpheum TheatreTom Sullivan will be performing at the Orpheum, on Mother’s Day, to benefit the Sight for Success charity.
The charity helps children in the community be better visually prepared for their future.
Sullivan is an accomplished actor, singer, author, entertainer and athlete despite being blind since birth.
In an interview with the WGIL Morning News, Sullivan tells WGIL that he believes the founders of Sight of Success are heroes.

“You know the Sight for Success foundation which basically is about vision therapy to allow kids to not have to go through frankly what I did, you know we’re talking about preserving vision and I think for me as a blind person that may sound odd you know there’s a whole lot of stuff I wish I could see and it’s never gonna happen”

Sullivan will be performing his solo show, Adventures in Darkness, which is based on his autobiographical book by the same name.
The version of the show being performed will be the same as the Broadway show set to premier next year.
The show will be performed on Sunday at 3pm at the Orpheum Theatre in Galesburg.
