Registration for Fall Live-Learning Shows will begin in August
Registration for Spring Live-Learning Shows will begin in November
See below for Details!
Spotlight Live-Learning Musicals are educational experiences for all skill levels. Students register for the production then are taught audition material, tips and tricks. Auditions take place the first few classes for placement within the cast (all who register will be in the show). The following weeks are spent learning the show material as well as acting, singing and dance skills that will be useful in the production and beyond. A full performance open to the public is produced at the end of the program.

Introducing the Spotlight 3-5 Year Old MUSICAL!

Spotlight is bringing back a popular program! This program introduces musical theatre to the younger crowd, 3-5 year olds. At each weekly rehearsal there will be singing, dancing, acting, crafts and fun. By the end of the program we will be putting on a musical for friends and family! More details will be announced just after Thanksgiving!

February Break and April Break Camps

We are going to put on an entire musical over February Break (February 18-22) and another musical April Break (April 15-19). Show titles are still being finalized but they will be fun! These programs will be open to ages K-12 and run 9am-5pm Monday through Friday with a final performance at the end of the week.

  • February Break is February 18-22
  • April Break is April 15-19
  • Program runs 9am-5pm, Monday through Friday
  • Auditions for placement take place the morning of the first day.
  • 24!

    In a 24 hour period, several plays will be written, rehearsed and performed in front of a live audience. Sounds crazy, because it is... but it works, and it's amazing what is created in that span of time. Spotlight will be hosting two "24" events. One around February Break and one around April Break. Stay tuned for details on these exciting events!

    VOICE, DRAMA, PIANO, DANCE, GUITAR, UKULELE, AUDITION PREP (for school, community or college auditions)
    Private lessons provide the most specialized instruction possible. For all skill levels.

    "24" - October Break theatre events!

    Spotlight Studios announces an exciting October Break event!

    An entire evening of original one act plays written, rehearsed, and performed in 24 hours by 8-12th graders!

    These are theatre events unlike any other. They are tiring, they are stressful, but they are always fun!

    In "24", artists in 7-12th grade gather together one evening. By the same time the next evening, several teen authors will have written brand new original plays. Several teen directors will take these plays and cast from a pool of teen performers. Then they rehearse, rehearse, rehearse until show time! Find out more about "24" and "12"!

    "Front of House" - Volunteer to Usher!

    You can play a part in the success of Spotlight shows! This is an opportunity for you to work "Front of House" (tickets, concessions, ushering) for ANY Spotlight shows (musicals, plays, improv shows).

    Work one or several performances. Great chance to learn the ins and outs of running a theater, plus you get to see the show for free. Time spent in this program an be used for volunteer hours!

    If you're interested in participating in this, send an email to with the subject "Front of House". We will send out a notice when performances come up.

    "Intern and Learn" - Intern at Spotlight

    Work directly with production team members on any Live-Learning program younger than you, or any Play in the Spotlight season. This hands-on experience is a great way to learn what it takes to put on a production. Interns attend all rehearsals and are involved from auditions to closing night, helping production team members and interacting directly with cast members.

    You can learn about: Directing, Choreographing, Music Directing, Costumes, Stage Management, Technical Theatre

    If you're interested in being considered for the Intern and Learn program, send an email to with the subject "Intern and Learn". In the email explain what production team member you'd like to work with (director, choreographer, music director, technical director, costumer) and why you'd like to participate in the program.

    Spotlight On... You!

    Do you want a place to perform? Do you want to build a fan base? Perform at Spotlight's intimate 100 seat black box theatre, and Spotlight will co-produce the show with you! If you have 45 minutes (or more) of material, be it vocal, instrumental, improv or stand up comedy, let Spotlight help you put up a performance and build a following.

    All you need to do is promote your show, prepare your material, and have an awesome performance. If your show is successful, it could turn into a regular gig!
