Spotlight Studios proudly announces it's Summer 2020 Season (version 2.0)

This isn't the summer anyone planned on, but it's the summer we will make special!

Because of social distancing restrictions and summer camp guidelines, we have created a whole new version of our Summer Season. It contains a mix of workshops, classes, events and performances - both online and in person. Social distancing won't let us pack our theatre with an audience, so we are going to bring the performances directly to you!

Anyone previously signed up for a Spotlight Summer program can apply those funds to a new program or request a refund.

Check out the complete listing below!

In Oz, Dorothy meets Glinda, the Good Witch of the North. Apparently, Dorothy’s house has landed upon – and fatally stricken – the Wicked Witch of the East. The Munchkins, now freed from the Wicked Witch of the East, celebrate and hail Dorothy as their new heroine. The celebration is interrupted as the Wicked Witch of the West suddenly appears, seeking vengeance. Unable to reclaim her sister's shoes, which are now on Dorothy’s feet, the Witch vows to return and quickly vanishes. Dorothy, seeking a way back home to Kansas, sets off to see the Wizard of Oz, with a little help from some friends!
