Springfield is a remarkable place, for so many reasons. It’s got about as rich a history as any town and it’s a veritable playground for outdoorsy-types. Springfield also happens to feature a number of fantastic theaters. Here are a few of our favorites…
This historic theater is almost a century old. If that wasn’t cool enough, the Gillioz is actually located on Route 66! The building itself is a work of art. Built in the Spanish Colonial Revival architectural style, it also features an Egyptian/Art Deco interior. You can catch films here as well as concerts and Broadway productions.
Focusing on modern theatrical works, the Springfield Contemporary Theater offers an extraordinarily intimate experience for the audience. The theater only seats 87 people. Front row is only 16 feet from the stage. Located in downtown Springfield, you can catch modern productions like “Hair” and “Xanadu” at this theater.
Largely run by volunteers, the Springfield Little Theater is over 100 years old. By far the most popular of all Springfield theaters, the venue entertains up to 60,000 patrons every year. You can enjoy plays and musicals here as well as performances by the Springfield Ballet and Springfield Regional Opera.
