About This Production

Spotlight continues its annual showcase of new one-act plays by the winners of its summer contest for young playwrights. One show, under 90 minutes, will present all three of these very different stories. The cast of these three plays may experience playing multiple featured roles.

“I Never Would’ve Guessed”
by Chris Brattin

Five teens, and one suspicious stray cat, meet around the fire on the last night of summer camp. “I Never Would’ve Guessed” is a hilarious take on how secrets among friends are rarely secrets.

“The 7 AM Bus”
by Max Mendoza

Bo unravels the mystery of crazy events during a long wait at a bus stop. “The 7 AM Bus” is an absurdist, Twilight Zone-style lesson in valuing every minute we might have.

“Boarding for Neverland”
by Spencer Wareing

Atticus and Kylie’s chance meeting at the airport as children forges a lifelong bond. “Boarding for Neverland” is a moving experience of friendship sustaining all trials and transformations.

Auditions: Dec. 26-27.
Information about auditions and production details will be posted soon.
