Springer Opera House

The Springer is not only the State Theatre of Georgia, it is also one of only seven theatres in the United States producing theatre in a National Historic Landmark. It offers a yearly season of three play series - the Mainstage Series in Emily Woodruff Hall and the Studio II Series in the brand new McClure Theatre and the Springer Children's Theatre Series in both the Mainstage Theatre and McClure Theatre.
When the Springer was built in 1871, it was the nicest theatre between New York and New Orleans, so it served as a venue where shows traveling from the Big Apple to the Big Easy could recoup some of their travel expenses. As a result, such noteworthy performers as Edwin Booth, Buffalo Bill, John Philip Sousa, Ma Rainey, Tom Thumb, Burt Reynolds, Oscar Wilde, Garrison Keillor, Chet Atkins and W.C. Fields have trod the Springer's boards. Exhibits in the lobbies include mementos of these luminaries.
Any trip to Columbus is incomplete without a tour or a performance at the Springer.
