The actors and staff are like a big family. The shows are normally very good quality, and the tickets are reasonably priced. They do tours as well to see the "haunted" areas.

We have been season ticket holders for over a decade. We enjoy everything that the Springer does. Our children have attended the summer academy camps every year and he loves it. #SpringerForever

The Springer, located downtown Columbus, is a great place for family entertainment. WE have been several times. There is always a fun, family oriented production going on. Always a lot of fan involvement and very detailed. I highly encourage yall to check it out when in town.

My husband and I got married at the courthouse across from here, when we were taking pictures ran into the manager who offered us a full tour. We got amazing photos and it made it such a special experience. It didn’t stop there, the musical they were showing happened to be my husbands favorite. It was amazing, I hadn’t seen it before but we both loved it! He announced our marriage and thanked my husband for his service at the beginning and aftewards greeted us. I have never been treated so well. The opera house is just gorgeous, so much history and the seats are super comfy! It was so much fun(: I can’t wait to come back again!
