Beth Domann

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.
