The Best Little Christmas Pageant Ever
Spotlight has a New Home
Christmas Reception 2013
Saturday - December 7th - 2pm
Sunday - December 8th - 2pm
Madison Middle School Auditorium
Spotlight Acting School will present Barbara Robinson's seasonal classic "The Best Christmas Pageant Ever" on December 7&8.
The Herdmans are absolutely the worst kids in the history of the world. They lie and steal and smoke cigars (even the girls). They talk dirty, hit little kids, cuss their teachers, set fire to Fred Shoemaker's old broken-down toolhouse, and take the name of the Lord in vain. So no one is prepared when the Herdmans invade church one Sunday-and decide to take over the annual Christmas pageant.
None of them has ever heard the Christmas story before. Their interpretation -- the Wise Men are a bunch of dirty spies and Herod needs a good beating-- has a lot of people up in arms. But the actual pageant is full of surprises for everyone, starting with the Herdmans themselves.
Spotlight Acting School is very proud to announce it's new home at Madison Middle School. The Spotlight staff is no stranger to the Madison Middle school stage, once called the Madison County Schools Theater before Madison Southern and Madison Central were equipped with modern performance facilities.
The Madison Middle Auditorium is a traditional high stage theater with good lighting and sound capabilities. Spotlight is honored and grateful to Principal Steven Evans and Vice Principal Scott Anderson for the opportunity to partner with Madison Middle in furthering the performing arts in Madison County.

The Spotlight Acting School is a theatre school for children from ages 4 to 18. Our purpose is to provide a creative environment for children who want to learn about performing on stage and to foster a life long appreciation for the arts. The classes are designed not only to expose children to the various aspects of the theatre but also to teach them how to be comfortable in front of an audience which is a valuable skill for a lifetime.
Everyone enjoys a good story! As you can imagine, the telling of stories is one of the oldest art forms.
When children participate in theatre, they learn teamwork, and how to feel comfortable in front of a crowd.
But most of all, they learn to create a story in words, song, and movement.
It is an enchanting experience for both performer and audience.
Being in a production is something your child can assimilate and develop as a lifelong skill and pleasure.
