Spotlight Theatre

Is musical theatre your bowl of cherries? Then you’re probably up to your elbows in Spotlight already. You’ve zoot suited up for In The Mood. You’ve blubbered Boy George-style through The Wedding Singer. But what about everyone else, the ones still schlepping up to QPAC for a falsetto fix? They need go no further than Spotlight for classics like Monty Python’s Spamalot and Little Shop of Horrors.

Bloodthirsty potplants aside, it’s a crazy costume party obsessed world out there. Luckily Spotlight hires out digs from Grease, A Nightmare Before Christmas and everything in between. Before 3D movies there was 3D children’s theatre and it’s not too shabby an outing to grab a coffee in the Basement and watch their saucer-plate eyes expand as ‘real live actors’ reignite their love for storytelling. All this from a community theatre conceived in ’55 when The Boy From Oz was a still a Tenterfield kid and Mr G was a figment of Chris Lilley’s paternal gene pool.
