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 STARS program was created in 2018 as Spotlight Acting School’s way to target students that wanted a fully developed curriculum beyond what rehearsing a show could provide. We teach a lot of great skills in our regular shows and rehearsals, but there is simply not enough time to include everything we have to offer in one hour a week rehearsals. The STARS program challenges students to the next level with skill-building exercises, targeted classes, script readings, creative writing, broadcasting experiences, film experiences, and of course lots more live stage time than one show can allow.

PRIVATE LESSONS

Private lessons are available for students seeking to further their skills in singing, acting, and writing. All private lessons are offered bi-weekly (Every other week) and are included in the Premium and Studio enrollment levels.  Students taking private lessons will be offered opportunities to perform in student recitals throughout the year.  Lessons missed due to the Director not being available or a student’s absence will be offered time slots for a make-up session for up to one week (7 days). After the week expires the lesson will be skipped if not completed. Only lessons skipped due to a director’s absence are eligible for a bill credit.  The bill credit is $15 per lesson as of 7/1/2021. 


 

CABARETS

Cabarets are the main performing outlet for the STARS students.  Preformed throughout the year, Cabarets are loosely themed variety shows that feature mostly group performances, but sometimes include solos or smaller acts.  All STARS and STARS JR students will perform in Cabarets, but smaller acts and solos must complete an audition process in front of the directors before being included.  Occasionally the directors or guests from the adult players will participate.  Cabaret Acts are held to the highest performance standards.
