The Springer Opera House is a historic theater at 103 Tenth Street in Downtown Columbus, Georgia. First opened February 21, 1871, the theater was named the State Theatre of Georgia by Governor Jimmy Carter for its 100th anniversary season, a designation made permanent by the 1992 state legislature. The Springer has hosted legendary performers such as Edwin Booth, Oscar Wilde, Ethel Barrymore, Agnes de Mille, and bandleader John Philip Sousa. The building was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1970 and named a National Historic Landmark in 1978 for its architecture and state of preservation.

  • This is an excellent venue to see local produced plays. We saw "A Tuna Christmas" here and was very impressed with the theatre. The show was funny and well worth the price of admission.

  • We saw "A Tuna Christmas" here. The venue was excellent. The seating in the black box was perfect for being able to see the performers. The show was outstanding. A funny look at small town life.

  • My kids (9 & 6) have loved Springer Theatre Academy. It has helped them grow in confidence, learn life skills through stage skills, find their voice, and have a whole lot of fun. We especially love Summer Academy. The instructors and activities are great and perfectly geared towards each age group. Even our shy child who doesn’t particularly love to stand out had a blast and came out of her shell. That’s a testament to the care and expertise this program offers to meet each child right where they are at and teach them to “fail bodily”!
  • We love our time there! While we've seen three traditional productions there in the past, I have to give major props to their performance of Evil Dead. Outdoor theater has many challenges, but if you'll pardon the pun, they killed it! Edit to add: we've since seen it in the McClure theater along with a number of other shows in their 150th season. My kids adored their recent production of 'Dragons Love Tacos'
