What's Happening in Springfield | March 20-27

Did you know that there is a local television show where you can be a part of a live studio audience? There is and it’s called the Mystery Hour — a three time Emmy Award winning show that airs on the local FOX affiliate. The Mystery Hour is holding one of their live tapings this Friday night, March 24, at the historic Gillioz Theatre in downtown Springfield and anyone can be a part it it! It really is a fun chance to see what taping a television show entails and you’ll be entertained as well. The Mystery Hour usually includes some stand up comedy, sketches and live local music. The taping is at 7:30 and there is more information on our calendar of events.

The annual Ozark Spring Roundup is this weekend at the Ozark Empire Fairgrounds — that’s March 24-26. This event is known for bringing together a blend of agricultural and urban living enthusiasts together. In addition to equestrian, agricultural and urban vendors, the event will feature free seminars, equine clinicians and daily demonstration.

And then next Tuesday evening, March 28, the annual Pizza and Pasta Bowl returns to the Springfield Expo Center. Sample up to 20 of Springfield’s best pizza and pasta restaurants! This family-friendly event features a children’s area that includes bounce-houses, games, face painting, and more. Unlimited access to children’s games is only $5! In addition to the great food and activities, Pizza Bowl also features local bands, a silent auction and raffle items. 100% of the proceeds support the programs and mission of the Ozarks Literacy Council.

Looking Ahead

Springfield Little Theatre's Jesus Christ Superstar | March 31-April 15

In the first ever rock opera by the authors of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat and Evita, and composer of CATS and Phantom of the Opera, Christ’s final days are dramatized with emotional intensity, thought-provoking edge, and explosive theatricality. Wowing audiences for over 40 years, Jesus Christ Superstar is a timeless work set against the backdrop of an extraordinary and universally-known series of events, seen through the eyes of Judas Iscariot. Propelled by a stirring score, by turns driving and majestic, satirical and tender, Jesus Christ Superstar is an impassioned global phenomenon.
