I don't think you'd get much out of just going to the Springer Opera House, but if you have a reason to be there like a play or an event, it is a beautiful venue to experience. If you have a particular interest in old theaters, perhaps you could call ahead and arrange a tour.

This is Georgia's State Theater. It is old and beautiful and full of history. If you are in Columbus in October check out the haunted tours. There are some very talented people in the area.

We have been to many shows at the Springer Opera House over the years and have never been disappointed. We always leave remarking that we never knew that Columbus had so many talented people! Besides the excellent shows, the theater itself is a treasure! It would be nice if the theater put an insert into the programs letting the audience... More

Being sophisticates and great patrons of the arts, the Musclechests get our culture on here about once a year. It never disappoints. In this age of Dolby Surround This and Super-Widescreen That, you will be amazed at how thoroughly good live theater in a semi-intimate setting can still whup a movie's tail. Plus it feels great to support the community.... More
