Our 2021-2022 season is an exciting mix of recent winning musicals, classic favorites, and fresh original works!
As the season begins, Spotlight remains cautious about the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic. Even though we’re excited to get back to staging large shows, we urge everyone to be careful. For the time being, masks are still required in our theatre due to the vaccinated population not including children.
