Springfield Little Theatre
When the Landers burned in 1920, it could have been the end of the theatre's 10-year run as one of Springfield's top vaudeville stages. Instead firefighters from four stations, an asbestos curtain, and a fire-retardant buildup of applause on the wood ensured that the show went on—despite soon switching to the silver screen. Then, in 1970, the historic building began yet another history-making chapter when it became home to the Springfield Little Theatre, which switched the venue's focus from "talkies" to plays. Today, audiences passing through its lovingly restored Baroque halls take their seats to watch one of the eight productions the SLT puts on every year.
