Where are you located?
Our Operations Center, including our offices and daytime box office, is located at 2025 E Chestnut Expressway, Suite D. However, most productions currently are performed at the Historic Fox Theatre, 157 Park Central Square, in downtown Springfield. Check each specific show page for final performance details.
How are your shows rated? Such as movie ratings?
SCT itself on offering a diverse selection of arts entertainment. Not all productions may appeal to or be appropriate for every person or for all ages. Patrons are encouraged to familiarize themselves with the shows we offer in order to make informed decisions prior to purchasing tickets. SCT offers few advisories about subject matter, as sensitivities vary from person to person. We do not edit shows for content. We present them as the playwright intended them. If you have any questions about content, age-appropriateness or stage effects (such as strobe lights or theatrical fog) that might have a bearing on patron comfort, please contact the box office at 417-831-8001.
Is there a cell phone policy?
The use of cell phones (including text messaging), cameras or any other recording device is not allowed in the theatre at any time! All cell phones should be completely turned off and put away during the performance. Cell phones left on “vibrate” give off a glow that can distract actors and audience members. We ask those patrons to use their cell phones in the lobby area of the theatre only.
Can we take food and drinks to our seats?
Outside food and drink are not allowed in the theatre. However, any items you purchase at our concession counter can be enjoyed at your seat.
Is there available seating for those with special needs?
We are able to accommodate most patron needs in regards to seating. We just ask that you let us know what needs you or someone in your party may have when you make your reservation. We also have live ASL interpreted performances on the second Friday of each MainStage run, inquire at the box office about seating for those performances.
What should we wear?
While the theatre is indoors and climate controlled, dress for the weather and personal comfort.
How can we let the artists know what we thought?
We hope after your visit to Springfield Contemporary Theatre you will be encouraged to discuss and reflect on the production. We can share your feedback with the artists who make these productions possible. We always want to hear any feedback you have. Feel free to either engage with Springfield Contemporary Theatre on Facebook or e-mail our Artistic Director at SCTheatreMO@gmail.com.
