Show Will Go On Campaign
Building to the Future! The Landers Theatre has been a continuous presence in downtown Springfield since 1909, and SLT has owned the building since 1970. We continually face challenges to maintain and update our treasured home so that it can be here for generations to come. This season we have to spend over $50,000 in maintenance costs! We are also looking to reconfigure our balcony to make it more comfortable and accessible for you, our patrons.
With this in mind, we are premiering an annual fund drive which we are calling: The Show Will Go On. This fund drive will be unique in that for every dollar raised, a portion will go into our operations that put the shows on the stage and kids in the classrooms and a portion will go into the fund established to maintain the Theatre itself. Below you have the option to specify how you wish your donation to be divided.
I literally grew up at the Landers Theatre. If I wasn’t at school or at home I was most often on the stage here. I learned to love the art of theatre here and relished the many opportunities I had to express myself through acting, singing, and dancing. I am ever grateful SLT continues to provide budding young actors (and some of us old ones) those rare and wonderful opportunities to shine in our own light! Long live SLT and the Landers!
