Home About
Springfield Little Theatre exists to create the magic of live theatre to empower and inspire all.

We’re in the stories told on stage. We’re in every light cue and set piece. We’re in the very first step a kid takes in his tap shoes. We’re in the lifelong friendships that began on the first day of a rehearsal. We’re in every smile, laugh and tear of each audience member as they’re watching a show. We’re in the conversations had on the car ride home.

We are not just in our community, we are our community. The moments, feelings, conversations and relationships that are created by experiencing live theatre live in all of us. That’s magic. That’s Springfield Little Theatre.

Springfield Little Theatre is a nonprofit, community theatre located in downtown Springfield, Missouri. SLT began in 1934 with the production of The Importance of Being Ernest and has grown tremendously each year since. Now entering into our 86th season, we produce roughly eight mainstage shows on our home stage at The Landers Theatre while our Education Department has grown into our second home, The Judith Enyeart Reynolds School of the Performing Arts for Springfield Little Theatre where they offer classes, workshops, performance opportunities and arts outreach to our entire community.

We are where we are today because of the people and businesses who believed in Springfield Little Theatre and continue to support, participate and attend shows. Thank you.
