About the Springfield Theatre Centre

The Springfield Theatre Guild incorporated as a not-for-profit organization in 1947 and has been providing quality entertainment ever since.

From performances in many Springfield venues to the construction of our building at 101 E. Lawrence, to our name change to Springfield Theatre Centre (STC) and finally to our new location at the Hoogland Center for the Arts — our goal has been the same:

To bring our community and the performing arts together. We strive to provide Central Illinois with quality theatre, educational opportunities, and a creative outlet for live theatrical arts. With the wide variety of musicals, plays, children’s shows, murder mysteries, trivia nights and launch parties, Springfield Theatre Centre is thrilled to entertain and provide a space for creative minds to come together.  

Furthermore, STC’s PAVE Arts and Theatre Summer Camp and the Active & Creative Teen Theatre program offer young people an opportunity to learn the skills necessary to build confidence not only in performance but in all aspects of theatre.

As we celebrate over 70 years of bringing our community and the performing arts together, we always welcome your participation. Whether you are a member of the SRO Club, actor, director, support staff, volunteer or a member of our audience, we sincerely appreciate your support!  We couldn’t do it without you!
