We went there not knowing what to expect. We took the tour and it was the best hour and a half we spent in Columbus besides seeing family. I would take the tour again! I can't wait to go back and see a show. I loved the sweet young lady who gave us the tour. She was amazing in her... More

Beautiful theater with wonderful history. We have seen many orchestra's, musicals and plays here. Every seat is offers a great view and the design of the Opera house makes for a reverberating sound that amplifies voices and makes instruments and song come alive! They always seem to have a great selection of events. Make a night of it and have... More

She generously showed us around the Springer, which is actually a living, breathing complex of stages, schools, actors' residences, costume and stage-making and an... More

My wife & I attended "Della's Diner" in the McClure Theatre on Thursday evening 11/20. The musical performances by the six actors were pleasant, energetic, & amusing, although the storyline was cornball/sophomoric. The McClure is small with open seating, so I'd advise coming early if you want the best seating (although any seat is fine). The individual chairs are closely... More

There is no limit to the purely positive adjectives that I could apply to this, the State Theater of Georgia. It is a relic and a masterpiece for those of who have been there, performed there, and enjoyed the spirit of the dramatic arts there. For some of us, it was where we found ourselves--it was where we discovered friendship... More

The springer house is a place to go when you just want to go on an old fashion date night, but theatrically. It was enjoyable.

A beautiful facility with top rate performances!! We have had season tickets for 10 years. We drive 70 miles to Columbus to attend five plays a year.
