About This Event

Ages 10-18, 9:00 AM - 4:00 PM

Six public performances. Previous workshop experience is required.

Springfield Little Theatre Summer Institutes are intensive, all-inclusive theatrical training grounds for experienced young musical theatre performers resulting in six public performances on the historic Landers Theatre stage! They provide exciting opportunities for committed students to be a part of full-scale production. A demanding two-week process from beginning to end, a Springfield Little Theatre Summer Institute may best be described as “summer stock” for youth!

Any high school student with equivalent experience (high school theatre, etc.) is invited to enroll in a Summer Institute. For students 8th grade and under, previous Springfield Little Theatre involvement is required for participation (a class, workshop, troupe, or production) or the pre-requisite can be satisfied through previous enrollment in a 6-week education class, School’s Out Play-in-a-Day Workshop, Education Series production, Summer Stages workshop, or Friday Fun Day!


Cady Heron may have grown up on an African savanna, but nothing prepared her for the wild and vicious ways of her strange new home: suburban Illinois. How will this naïve newbie rise to the top of the popularity pecking order? By taking on The Plastics, a trio of lionized frenemies led by the charming but ruthless Regina George. Cady and her friends devise a "Revenge Party" to end Regina’s reign with Cady going undercover as an aspiring Plastic. When the lines between the real Cady and her Plastic self get blurred, she must find her way back to herself and her true friends.

Performances Friday, July 21 and Saturday, July 22 at 10:30 AM, 12:30 PM, and 2:30 PM
