Springfield Contemporary Theatre's Songbook Series presents Springfield native Nedgra Culp in two performances next week.  She comes to SCT from her current engagement portraying Aretha Franklin in Branson's "Legends in Concert," and she's joined by two more of Branson's top female vocalists, Chelsie Odom and Rebecca Taylor, to form the trio "Girls on Fire."   The original Sunday Feb.19 show is SOLD OUT, so they've added an additional performance Thursday Feb.23 at 7:00pm at SCT Center Stage in Wilhoit Plaza, corner of Pershing and Robberson downtown.
