Beth Domann was first seen on the Landers stage in 1978 in a Springfield Little Theatre production of “Alice in Wonderland”. Since that time, she has delighted thousands as an actress and stand-up comic. Voted Springfield’s Funniest Person in 1990, Beth has a wit, warmth, and universality that make her and the characters she portrays easily identifiable, accessible and riotously hilarious. Having appeared for SLT most recently in the “Tuna Series” and entertained in “Sunday Gospel Brunch” with Mark Gideon, she has also served as an MC for several local organizations, corporations and numerous charitable events. She performed for the community’s “First Night Celebration” for twelve years; produced and presented her own evening of comedy titled “You Asked For It”; and opened for Dennis Miller and Ed Fiala. Beth can be seen on screen in the Academy Award nominated “Winter’s Bone”, which was selected Best Picture at Sundance Film Festival.
Her directing credits include many of the top grossing productions in Springfield Little Theatre history. Some of her mainstage favorites include "Grease", "Into The Woods", "Beauty and The Beast", "Seven Brides for Seven Brothers", "The Sound Of Music", "Curtains", "The Producers", "Spamalot", and "The Full Monty". She has also directed for the Jim Stafford Theatre and Yakov Smirnoff in Branson, Missouri. As Springfield Little Theatre’s executive director, Beth oversees all aspects of production for an eight-show series, and has been instrumental in designing a season that will attract the largest possible audience to quality shows entirely performed and crewed by community volunteers. She has recently been recognized as one of the Springfield Business Journal’s 12 People You Need To Know, and with a 2016 Ozzie Award, presented by the Springfield Regional Arts Council to an individual who has made significant contributions to the cultural landscape of our community. She is also honored to have been selected for the first 417 Biz 100 and would like to thank the SLT staff, board and volunteers for their exceptional gifts of time and talent, and the community for its incredible support.
