The Springer is a wonderful place to go "back in time". All performances are great!

Visit the Springer and you'll be glad you did. Loved To Kill A Mockingbird. The threater is always clean and neat. Beverages available are very suitable for families.

We just saw To Kill A Mockingbird yesterday. What a powerful and funny performance. Highly recommend it. We are season ticket holders and could not have been more pleased with the shows we've seen and are looking forward to see Sweeney Todd, Cat in the Hat, and Tommy.

Always enjoy all performances but just recently "Beauty and The Beast". It was a stellar performance that had the theatre lite up. The inside still is so regal after all these years. I remember taking my daughter to see "The Wizard of Oz", some 20 years ago and seems like only the Plays have changed.

I have seen dozens of shows at this theatre ranging from Driving Miss Daisy to Peter Pan to Anna and the King. Every show is wonderfully done. The actors are top notch, the backgrounds and props are first rate and the theatre itself is exceptionally beautiful.

Ron and Paul did a superb job! I had never seen it and absolutely loved the show. All the costume changes, the incredible amount of dialog and the excellent sense of timing all performed marvelously in the McClure theater. Columbus is truly becoming a mecca for the arts. Thanks to everyone who helped make this happen!

Thank you for coming to see "A Tuna Christmas." Now you know why it has become a Springer holiday tradition! We just can't get enough of Bertha, Petey, Carlene, Didi, and all the zany characters of Tuna, Texas! We do hope you return to see another one of our productions.

As usual the production of Beauty and the Beast on the Springer stage was another beautifully crafted performance! For the past 5 years I have been a season ticket holder. Can't wait until December 17th to see Tuna Christmas for the 5th year in a row! Then in January To Kill a Mockingbird! If you have never seen a show... More

Everyone must go and see a show at the Springer at least one time and then you will want to come back again and again. Some of my favorites have been a Tuna Christmas, Patsy Cline, and the Wizard of Oz. I am excited to see Beauty and the Beast in December.

One of the best cultural experiences I have known. We were fortunate to see "Ragtime" there. The Springer is a true theater with some of the best acoustics possible. The staff is gracious, courteous, and a joy to interact with. I would recommend the Springer to residents of Columbus and tourists also! I attend many events at the Springer.
