A Community Theater

The Spotlight Playhouse is a community theater at its very heart.  We regularly host open auditions with a mission to help make the arts accessible to everyone while maintaining our mission to help support and house the programs of the Spotlight Acting School.

All auditions for the Spotlight Players and The Bluegrass Players are open to the community.

Chad Hembree, Executive Director of The Spotlight Playhouse serves as the administrator for both groups and will gladly answer any questions you might have about joining the groups.

The Spotlight Acting School is a  tuition-based performing arts school with a mission to turn no students away by providing financial aid and trade opportunities for students and families.

101 Dalmatians Auditions Ages 4-9 (Sept 25 – 11:30am)

Spotlight Acting School

You do not have to be currently enrolled in Spotlight Acting School to audition.

Students Age 4-9

All Students age 4-9 will be cast.

Students will be expected to sing a song (Happy Birthday is fine) and follow instructions (Act like an animal, Show us a sad face, Etc.) Optional monologues will be accepted after the regular audition process. Based on the classic animated film, Disney’s 101 Dalmatians KIDS is a fur-raising adventure featuring Cruella De Vil, Disney’s most outrageous villain, and 101 of the most adorable heroes to set their paws onstage. With a high-spirited score and lovable characters, this stage adaptation is certain to charm and delight all audiences.

Pet owners, Roger and Anita, live happily in London with their Dalmatians, Pongo, and Perdita, stalwart dogs devoted to raising their puppies. Everything is quiet until Anita’s former classmate, the monstrous Cruella De Vil, plots to steal the puppies for her new fur coat. The Dalmatians rally all the dogs of London for a daring rescue of the puppies from Cruella and her bumbling henchmen.

Ages waivers will be granted with permission. Students not in the designated age range (4-9) are not guaranteed roles.

Spotlight is a tuition-based performing arts school. Standard tuition is $85 per month. Financial aid and work-study options are available and no student will be turned away.

We anticipate having two casts. We will call them Blue cast and Purple cast. The only difference is the rehearsal and performance times/dates. All rehearsals prior to dress week will be on Saturdays.
