AuditionsHere are some things you should know before auditioning for Spotlight Acting School.

Accepted

EVERY CHILD IS CAST IN MOST SCHOOL PRODUCTIONS.

Don’t worry about whether or not your child will be accepted.

(Occasionally we cast a traveling show, bonus show, players show, or one that simply cannot accommodate everyone,
but it will be listed on the audition. Unless stated otherwise, you can safely assume every child gets cast.)

AUDITION DETAILS: Each production will have a detailed description of the audition process.

To enroll, show up at one of the audition/registration events listed below or come by the
Playhouse for a tour. Call 859-661-0600 or email [email protected] for more information.

*In the case of inclement weather, illness, and technical issues, schedules are subject to change. We do not prorate any tuition. Tuition is based on 4 hours of instruction per month. We purposefully do not include Dress Week in our tuition calculations. This gives Spotlight as much as 10 hours of bonus instructional time that can more than make up for missed regular rehearsals.

*Holidays and Breaks – Spotlight shuts down for several Holidays and breaks. Spotlight does not budget the 5th Saturday in any 5 week month for tuition to allow for Holidays.  Additionally, we purposefully do not include Dress Week in our tuition calculations to make up for any extra time missed in regular rehearsals.

The following shows are school productions intended for the listed age range. Each show includes enrollment in the Spotlight Acting School. You do not have to be currently enrolled to audition. Here are some highlights.

  1. Every child is cast in school productions.

Join Alex the Lion, Marty the Zebra, Melman the Giraffe, Gloria the hip hip Hippo, and, of course, those hilarious, plotting penguins as they bound onto your stage in the musical adventure of a lifetime. Based on the smash DreamWorks animated motion picture, Madagascar – A Musical Adventure JR. follows all of your favorite crack-a-lackin’ friends as they escape from their home in New York’s Central Park Zoo and find themselves on an unexpected journey to the madcap world of King Julien’s Madagascar.

Alex the lion is the king of the urban jungle, the main attraction at New York’s Central Park Zoo. He and his best friends — Marty the zebra, Melman the giraffe and Gloria the hippo — have spent their whole lives in blissful captivity before an admiring public and with regular meals provided for them. Not content to leave well enough alone, Marty lets his curiosity get the better of him and makes his escape — with the help of some prodigious penguins — to explore the world.

Everybody wants to be a cat in Disney’s stage adaptation of the animated classic motion picture.

In the heart of Paris, a kind and eccentric millionairess wills her entire estate to Duchess, her high-society cat, and her three little kittens.
