I Love Lucy, Live on Stage

I love everything about the 1950’s. The movies, music, dress, TV shows, everything. I love Lucy was very refreshing to see onstage. Each catchy jingle from the 50’s was played as a musical theater performance through a talented ensemble cast. As we became a part of the show as the studio audience of the taped episodes, I felt like I was really there, watching…

    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.
