“So I think anybody who sees it will be quite pleased and quite impressed with what these actors have created in these roles.”

That’s George Cron, director of Springfield Contemporary Theatre’s new production of Mark St. Germain’s play “Freud’s Last Session”, which opens this weekend at SCT Center Stage in Wilhoit Plaza.  Joining Cron in our studio were his two actors, Terry Bloodworth and Actor’s Equity member David Schmittou.

Springfield Contemporary Theatre at SCT Center Stage in Wilhoit Plaza, corner of Pershing & Jefferson downtown, presents the annual "Missouri Solo Play Festival" January 4-20, with three great solo performers appearing in repertory.  This is the third year of the festival, says Dr. Robert Bradley, who's directing the second show in the festival, "Chesapeake."  You may remember four shows in the festival last year--but one of them was actually a solo dance performance by MSU's Ruth Barnes.  This year it's back to three plays, period.
