More than 100 local and regional artists will be participating this year, with several members electing to submit two pieces of artwork for the show. The opening night reception – a catered event – is free and open to the public and begins at 6:00p on Saturday, October 5. The awards ceremony, with thousands of dollars at stake (the “Jack Brinkley Best in Show” award is $1,000) begins at 7:00p. The show continues at the Library through Friday, November 1.

Based on the international bestselling children’s book, Rainbow Fish is the musical story of the ocean’s most beautiful, most shimmery fish. When Rainbow Fish refuses to share his vibrant shimmering scales, the whole ocean seems to turn against him for his vanity. Unhappy that no one adores him anymore, the Rainbow Fish seeks out the wise Octopus who helps him understand that it is far more valuable to be admired for being kind than it is for being beautiful. October 12 at 2 pm will be a Sensory Friendly Performance. During this performance, we have added accommodations for patrons with sensory-processing disorders, PTSD, or Autism. For instance, house lights will remain half-lit, trigger-warning lights may illuminate, and we will offer a safe space in our lobby for over-stimulated patrons. This is not a condensed show.
More Fun in Columbus!

The cult classic MOVIE, The Rocky Horror Picture Show, returns this October at the HAUNTINGLY beautiful Springer Opera House. The film will be shown in our McClure Theatre (Studio Theatre) with a LIVE SHADOW CAST. Come in character or come as you are and see the FILM that was not just for viewing, but for doing! Sweethearts Brad (Barry Bostwick) and Janet (Susan Sarandon), stuck with a flat tire during a storm, discover the eerie mansion of Dr. Frank-N-Furter (Tim Curry), a transvestite scientist. As their innocence is lost, Brad and Janet meet a houseful of wild characters, including a rocking biker (Meat Loaf) and a creepy butler (Richard O’Brien). Through elaborate dances and rock songs, Frank-N-Furter unveils his latest creation: a muscular man named “Rocky.”
