Season Shows

2021-2022 Season

Our 2021-2022 season was an exciting mix of recent winning musicals, classic favorites, and fresh original works!

Spring marked a turning point for many theatres in the Valley recovering from fewer and smaller productions, and lower attendance, prior to widespread vaccinations and other precautions. We ended the season celebrating a welcome return to sold-out shows.

Spotlight was honored with 56 nominations for ariZoni Theatre Awards of Excellence for the 2021-2022 season, with our performers and artists winning 23 “Zoni” awards.
