The Springfield Youth Performance Group (SYPG), an organization spotlighting young talent from the Springfield area, is presenting its Summer Showcase, Princess Journey.


The SYPG Summer Showcase features a cast of area youth performing original pieces highlighting different disciplines of dance, including musical theatre. Princess Journey will bring to life the stories of both classic and modern fairy tale princesses, including Rapunzel, Maid Marion and Robin Hood, Princess and the Frog, Giselle, Mermaids, Pirates, Faeries, and Swans.

A Princess Party will be held in the lobby of Hoogland one hour prior to each performance. Activities include a princess make-over, craft, autographs and pictures with the cast of Princess Journey, and an opportunity to participate on stage in the opening of the show. Come dressed up as a prince or princess! The cost is $10 per child and is payable at the entrance to the party – no reservations required.
