Somewhere, someone said to look for hidden treasures in the darndest of places. That thought can be said of Springfield, Ky. Besides the historic value in and around Springfield and the wonderful dining establishments, folks in Washington County can be especially proud of a wonderful gem. It is the Central Kentucky Community Theater at the Opera House in downtown Springfield.
My sweetheart and I are in the Mid-Kentucky Chorus, and had the privilege of working with the young people from the Central Kentucky Community Theater during our recent concert series at St. Catharine College. These talented young ladies and gentlemen certainly made us seasoned performers sit up and take notice. They brought our concerts up to a higher level that will be hard to match. We had a wonderful time sharing the stage with them.
The Friday night before Mother’s Day, my sweetheart and I went to the performance of “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dream Coat” put on by most of the very same young folks. They were outstanding! Truly a joy to watch!
Jan and Scott Fatizzi have done a wonderful job of tapping into the wealth of raw talent for that show. Their production was as good, if not better, than what I’ve enjoyed in other theater venues. Springfield and Washington County can be proud of the young people involved in that production of “Joseph.” I believe they could sling mud on a picket fence, turn it into a musical, and it would be a hit. What wonderful talents they are!
Springfield and Washington County has a wonderful treasure in its community theater. It’s refreshing to see so many young people involved in a wonderful community effort.
Springfield and Washington County, you should treasure what you have.
