Springfield Contemporary Theatre presents Tribes by Nina Raine, winner of the 2012 Drama Desk Award for Best Play, and directed by Rick Dines, August 7-23 at SCT Center Stage, corner or Robberson and Pershing in downtown Springfield.  According to Rick “it’s a very fascinating play, a beautifully written piece that concerns this very eccentric, academic English family.  I had never read a play like this—it was so honest, and told a story I’d never heard told before.” The New York Times calls Tribes "a smart, lively…play that asks us to hear how we hear, in silence as well as in speech."

Equity actor/singer Sean Doherty from New York will be nothing if not busy as he spends his third summer in Springfield.  Cast in the lead role in Missouri State University Tent Theatre's opening production of its 53rd season, the musical Leap of Faith, Doherty decided to spend the one off-night during the run--this Sunday, June 14--doing an hour-long solo cabaret evening for Springfield Contemporary Theatre's "Sunday Songbook Series." on Sunday June 14 at 7:00pm at SCT Center Stage at Wilhoit Plaza (corner of Pershing and Robberson).

Springfield Contemporary Theatre will present the Springfield-area premiere of the musical "The Marvelous Wonderettes" June 5-21 at SCT Center Stage, 431 S. Jefferson #136 (corner of Pershing and Robberson).  Josh Inmon directs and choreographs this production, with musical direction by Alex Huff, and costumes -- which are "fantastic," says Josh--by Lou Schaefer. This smash off-Broadway hit takes to the 1958 Springfield High School prom where we meet the Wonderettes, four girls with hopes and dreams as big as their crinoline skirts!
