Springfield Contemporary Theatre goes classical with a production of Shakespeare's The Tempest February 13-March 1 in Center Stage at Wilhoit Plaza. The original “lost” island play about romance, magic and renewal, this beloved masterpiece places the desire for revenge against the demands of love and captures the essence of the human condition with its compelling and timeless themes.

Springfield Contemporary Theatre's season continues with "Moonlight and Magnolias," Sept.12-28 at SCT Center Stage at Wilhoit Plaza (Corner of Pershing and Robberson). David Rice directs this outrageous comedy by Ron Hitchison, with David Waggoner portraying legendary Hollywood producer David O. Selznick. As Waggoner explains, Selznick had a problem... actually, several problems.  George Cukor, Selznick's best friend and his hand-picked choice to direct the film version of Margaret Mitchell's novel Gone With the Wind, isn't working out.
