Springfield Little Theatre (SLT) is a non-profit, volunteer-driven organization, energized by the highest artistic ideals, that strives to entertain, educate, and involve the community in live theatrical presentations and in the preservation of the historic Landers Theatre (1909) and McDaniel School (1908).
One of the top community theatres in the country, SLT presents 100 professional quality performances a season including large scale musicals, dramatic and comedic plays, family friendly productions, and discounted and free presentations to the underserved at the beautiful Landers Theatre.
Nationally recognized, the SLT Education Program at The Judith Enyeart Reynolds School of the Performing Arts (The Judy) provides unparalleled theatrical, social, and educational experiences to thousands each season, nurturing every level of performer--from very young children exploring creative play, to students of all ages seeking a fun introductory experience, to adult learners, to pre-professional youth and college level interns aspiring for a career in performance, technical theatre, or administration. Students learn the values of accountability, discipline, teamwork, kindness, hard work and play—attributes that will serve them in any of their future endeavors. Graduates emerge as confident, creative, and caring community leaders, excelling in multi-facets of business, education, and the arts. Participation encourages community involvement and provides bountiful opportunities for volunteer service.
