Juanita K. Hammons Hall for the Performing Arts - Theater Information

HISTORY: Juanita K. Hammons Hall for the Performing Arts is the realization of a dream that began in the 1960s - to conceive, create and construct a state-of-the-art performing arts center to serve the needs of Springfield and the surrounding region. The Hall is named for the wife of well-known developer, entrepreneur and philanthropist John Q. Hammons, in recognition of the couple's major donation to the venue’s capital campaign. Since its gala opening in October of 1992, Juanita K. Hammons Hall for the Performing Arts has met and exceeded the expectations of arts enthusiasts. Located on the campus of Missouri State University in Springfield, Missouri, Juanita K. Hammons Hall regularly attracts patrons from southern and central Missouri, northern Arkansas, and eastern Kansas and Oklahoma. The venue features a 2,264-seat theatre including multi-level boxes and orchestra pit; spacious backstage facilities with individual, crew and chorus dressing rooms, cast lounge, green room, loading dock and break areas; expansive multi-level foyer-style lobby; public and private reception areas; full-service front-of-house, technical and support staff; on-site computerized box office; and 5-level parking garage adjacent to the building.
