Project description: An addition and 70,000-square-foot renovation project will expand the early childhood development program housed in the Reeds Spring Primary School building while upgrading the overall facility. The project covers three major components, according to officials at Dake Wells Architecture: a “full-gut” renovation, including reconfiguring walls and adding restrooms to most classrooms; a storm-rated classroom addition on the west end; and an infill addition in a courtyard space to house the art room and library.
This year, for the 38th season, the Springfield Ballet Inc. will perform “The Nutcracker” on the proscenium stage of the Landers Theatre, with six performances set Dec. 15-18.
