Celebrating 10 years of the Wildish Theater

Twitter post full-size

Working with Dan Egan at the Richard E. Wildish Theater, aka the Wildish Theater, has a familiar feel as he was my boss at the Springfield Area Chamber of Commerce a few years ago. A dedicated Springfield citizen, art supporter and musician, his focus on keeping the theater a “jewel” in the City of Springfield. Often a regular at the Wildish myself, I appreciate the architecture by renowned architect, Otto Poticha. He devised an ingenious design for the limited available space. With 283 seats in stadium seating, there is truly not a bad seat in the house. The excellent acoustics and flexible stage showcase a wide array of activities. I photograph for one of the resident companies, Chamber Music Amici and have photographed the theater itself. I was honored when Dan asked me to be a part of the 10-year Anniversary Event with helping out with the design and event planning.
