John Legend Theater
The John Legend Theater is a $2.5 million renovation to the existing auditorium, lobby, and Clifton Avenue entrance located at the Springfield Center of Innovation: The Dome, formerly Springfield South High School. The theater holds 680 seats and was funded by a lead donation of $500,000 from Academy Award-, Golden Globe-, and Grammy-winning artist John Legend, who is a graduate of the Springfield City School District. Many other donors have joined this effort, including Speedway LLC, Security National Bank, the Turner Foundation, the Springfield Foundation, and several generous individuals. The Springfield City School District Board of Education provided additional funding to complete the project.
