The Mystery Hour began in The Original Basement Theatre of The Skinny Improv as a conspicuously fake TV show. Over five pre-televised seasons, it grew over grassroots word of mouth to become an underground phenomenon.

Now with an Emmy win, 3 Emmy nominations, syndication on multiple FOX networks, and live audiences of 700+ people, The Mystery Hour is in it’s fifth season on television. Hosted by “mystery” Jeff Houghton, the show features fascinating guests, incredible music, and hilarious comedy sketches. The Mystery Hour is filmed monthly in front of a live studio audiences at the historic Gillioz Theatre in downtown Springfield, MO and airs on FOX 5 at 9:00 P.M. and on FOX 14 Saturday nights at Midnight.

The Springfield Regional Opera made a triumphant return to the historic Gillioz in 2015 with The Marriage of Figaro, the first production under the direction of globally renowned singer Michael Spyres. The SRO strives to foster a greater understanding of, and appreciation for opera through outreach and education in addition to providing a wide range of repertoire to engage both existing and emerging audiences.
