Springfield Contemporary Theatre Presents "Fugitive Songs"

PREMIERE: FEBRUARY 11, 2021, 7:00 PM

(Pre-Show Activities Begin at 6:30 PM)


Award-winning songwriters, Chris Miller and Nathan Tysen's Fugitive Songs is a 19-song journey across America. This innovative show, conceived as half-musical/half-hootenanny, spotlights people on the run: a disgruntled Subway sandwich employee, a jilted ex-cheerleader, a pair of Patty Hearst fanatics, a stoner forced to rob a convenience store against his will and so many others. Blending traditional folk music with contemporary pop and gospel, Fugitive Songs offers a new sound for a restless America. This eclectic score delivers poignant and thought-provoking stories that capture each character's "reasons to run."

There will be two ways to view Fugitive Songs. On Thursday, February 11 attend a special, interactive premiere event co-presented with Broadway Unlocked. This premiere event will be hosted by Nathan Shelton and we will be joined by friends and theatre-makers from around the country, including the show's writers, to launch the run of this exciting production. Patrons will join us in Broadway Unlocked's virtual theatre venue, All Together Now.

Premiere event patrons are invited to come to the venue for pre-show activities beginning at 6:30pm including:

  • a Fireside Chat with Miller & Tysen hosted by SCT's Gretchen Teague,
  • a new spin on a favorite retro game show hosted by actress Annie Crumbaugh with three past SCT theatre couples,
  • and The Maroon Room, an MSU Alumni Lounge hosted by Jermaine Blackwell.

The venue is entirely interactive and, like the theatre on opening night, patrons can decide how much they want to watch the activity or engage in the communal experience.

Following the opening night performance, the virtual lobby is open for "face to face" chats with members of the cast and creative team replicating in the online realm the theatre's popular opening night receptions. The evening will be a celebration and showcase of talent from the past three decades at Springfield Contemporary Theatre and demonstrate their fresh perspective on what is still safely possible during these challenging times.

​The following three evenings, patrons can join us for a straight forward live stream of the production Fugitive Songs.

Note: for this production, the show streams nightly at 7:00pm. This production is not available on-demand to be streamed at any time, patrons must view it at the designated show time.
