Springer Theatricals was founded in 1990 by veteran producer, director and writer Paul Pierce. With 37 years of touring experience, Pierce has produced over 40 national tours representing nearly 5,000 performances in the continental United States and Canada. One of our nation’s few non-profit touring theatres, Springer Theatricals’ mission is to help communities BUILD AUDIENCES by providing presenters with high-quality, low-cost professional musical theatre entertainment and first-rate support services.
Pierce and the Springer artistic staff audition thousands of actors, singers and dancers nationwide each year and carefully assemble teams of highly talented, personable, flexible stage artists dedicated to the Springer’s mission.
Springer Theatricals is the national touring unit of the famous Springer Opera House, one of America’s premier historic theatre destinations. Founded in 1871 in Columbus, Ga., the Springer is Georgia’s official State Theatre and the stage has been graced by the world’s greatest stage artists including Edwin Booth, Ethel Barrymore, Katy Perry, George M. Cohan, Irving Berlin, Agnes de Mille, Mary Martin, Truman Capote, Hal Holbrook, Marvin Hamlisch, Burt Reynolds, Garrison Keillor and Branford Marsalis. The Springer is one of America’s top ranked theatre companies with main stage, studio and children’s theatre productions plus an acclaimed theatre academy with more than 800 acting students. The Springer has also been designated as one of “The World’s Top Ten Ghostly Destinations” by the Travel Channel for its well-documented supernatural activity.
