On the eve of her twenty-fifth birthday, Catherine, a troubled young woman, has spent years caring for her brilliant but unstable father, a famous mathematician. Now, following his death, she must deal with her own volatile emotions; the arrival of her estranged sister, Claire; and the attentions of Hal, a former student of her father's who hopes to find valuable work in the 103 notebooks that her father left behind. Over the long weekend that follows, a burgeoning romance and the discovery of a mysterious notebook draw Catherine into the most difficult problem of all: How much of her father's madness—or genius—will she inherit?

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.
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!

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"!
