THE GAME'S AFOOT

 

Join us for Christmas in July!

This summer, The Spotlight Players are celebrating Christmas in July with a featured presentation of Ken Ludwig's side splitting and keep you guessing mystery, THE GAME'S AFOOT.   Also billed as HOLMES FOR THE HOLIDAYS, THE GAME'S AFOOT takes place in December 1936 at the home of Broadway star William Gillette.

 

Admired the world over for his leading role in the play SHERLOCK HOLMES, Gillette has invited his fellow cast-members to his Connecticut castle for a weekend of revelry, but when one of the guests is stabbed, the festivities in this isolated house of tricks and mirrors quickly turn dangerous. Now it’s up to Gillette himself, as he assumes the persona of his beloved Holmes, to track down the killer before the next victim is claimed. The suspense and hilarity are non-stop in this glittering whodunit set during the Christmas holidays.

 

The Spotlight Players is a group of professional and semi-professionals actors that perform to support the Spotlight Acting School.  Mostly assisting in intergenerational shows in the past, such as successful productions of CATS, MUSIC MAN and HAIRSPRAY. the Spotlight Players will be taking a more active role on its own now to support the Spotlight Foundation.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Proceeds from THE GAME'S AFOOT will benefit The Spotlight Foundation.  The Spotlight Foundation is a charitable organization whose main goal is to provide children an opportunity to perform and learn about the performing arts.  Often limited by finances, many children never have access to the formal training and private lessons that could allow them to excel in the arts. Several students at Spotlight Acting School are subsidized through the offering of financial aide and scholarships.  The Spotlight Foundation will expand these offerings through tax deductible donations and grants, allowing even more children to benefit from programs sponsored by Spotlight Acing School.

What's a cat to do? In Disney’s THE ARISTOCATS KIDS, Madame's jealous butler Edgar cat-naps Duchess and her Aristokittens and abandons them in the Parisian countryside. Luckily, Thomas O'Malley and his rag-tag bunch of alley cats come to their rescue! The show, based on the Disney film, features plenty of exuberant group numbers and a cast that can be expanded by adding additional alley cats to the chorus.

The Legend of Sleepy Hollow

Its the spooky classic story by Washington Irving, presented with all the thrills, chills and laughs that keep audiences on the edge of their seats. The storybook tale revolves around the main characters—the bumbling, awkward schoolteacher, Ichabod, the coquettish Katrina and Ichabod's brutish rival, Brom Bones. There are also characters who play storytellers, keeping the action and pace moving throughout. As much fun as the play presents, it saves the best for last—the ride of the headless horseman. This adaptation remains dedicated to the spirit of the original work with lots of suspense and comedy. A perfect Halloween treat.

Coming this Season Christmas
Showcase

 

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.
