Just because the Landers Theatre on Walnut is currently closed for renovations, no one at SLT is taking time off, according to Artistic Director Beth Domann and Marketing Director Megan Buchbinder, who visited KSMU’s “Arts News” to catch us up on what’s happening.

Springfield Little Theatre will present Kander and Ebb's now-classic musical "Cabaret" starting next weekend... not at their usual venue, the Landers Theatre—it’s under renovation at this time—but at Nathan P. Murphy's, 218 S Campbell Avenue. Dates are January 17-February 3.  We were visited on “Arts News” by the show’s director and choreographer Chyrel Miller; Lysander Abadia, who plays the Master of Ceremonies; and the two actresses alternating in the role of Sally Bowles through the show’s three-week run, Ellen Spann and Sally Trtan.

In the spirit of not shooting your eye out, kid, Springfield Little Theatre invites you to their production of “A Christmas Story—The Musical,” based on the 1983 holiday movie favorite, which was based in turn on the stories of author/humorist/broadcaster Jean Shepherd.  Dates are November 23-December 9 at the Landers Theatre, 311 E. Walnut.  On “Arts News” we visited with director Chuck Rogers; Ryan Mattix, who plays “The Old Man” (aka Mr. Parker, Ralphie’s dad), and Chalmer Harper—himself a broadcaster locally at “The Wind” 88.3—in the role of “narrator/Jean Shepherd.”

No need for panic, ladies and gentlemen... mix a Hitchcock movie masterpiece with a juicy spy novel, then add a dash of Monty Python, and you have "The 39 Steps," a fast-paced comedic whodunit coming to Springfield Little Theatre at the Landers, 311 E. Walnut, Oct.19-28. Jamie Bower, who, along with Marni Erwin, co-directs this local production of the two-time Tony and Drama Desk Award-winning treat, adds, “We also are throwing in a dash of ‘the play that goes wrong’ as well.
