Spotlight Youth Theatre’s 2020-2021 Season has been announced in parts, in order to adjust our schedules appropriately as we test new formats of theatre during the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.
We now gear performances for cast and community safety in various creative ways. We have more exciting original plays and small-cast dramas than usual this season, and flexible formats. We’ll do outdoor shows, live events online, video streaming of shows, and some performances with small audiences physically distanced indoors.
