    What is SpotLight's Critical Reviewer Program?

    SpotLight's Critical Review Program gives high school students the opportunity to attend and review touring Broadway productions and SpotLight school productions. Critical Review is part of a larger curriculum that teaches communication skills, and enhances critical thinking and creative response. As part of this program, students receive study guides and press kits before the show, learn from experts including local theatre critics, playwrights and actors who discuss topics from lighting design to choreography, and in some cases, have expanded access to the Broadway touring cast and crew. 

    This program is funded through the generous support of Fred and Ann Moore.
