Announcement.
Monday the 16th of March.

COVID 19.
After taking advice from the government regarding the immediate closure of theatres to prevent the spread of the Coronanvirus.

We have to inform our Customers, Members, Friends and Volunteers of Spotlight Theatre, that we can no longer in good conscience open the theatre as we believe it would be putting our much valued audience at risk.

Therefore the Theatre is closed forthwith until a time when it is safe to open its doors again.

Booked Tickets.

If you have booked tickets to any of our upcoming shows, including Lilies on the Land you are of course entitled to a full refund and will be contacted in due course.
We are a small team of volunteers, so we ask for your patience as we go through this process.

Spotlight is a small community theatre that relies heavily on local support but we will survive through these most unusual circumstances.

Thank you for all your continued support.

We wish you all the very best of health and hope you keep well over the next few weeks.

We will keep you updated through our emails, website and facebook page.

Thank you from everyone at Spotlight.

  "Leopoldstadt" NT [Screened] Saturday 18th July 7 pm
Regarded as ‘Britain’s greatest living playwright’ (Times), Tom Stoppard’s critically acclaimed new play Leopoldstadt is a passionate drama of love, family and endurance.
 
At the beginning of the 20th century, Leopoldstadt was the old, crowded Jewish quarter of Vienna, Austria. But Hermann Merz, a factory owner and baptised Jew now married to Catholic Gretl, has moved up in the world.
 
We follow his family’s story across half a century, passing through the convulsions of war, revolution, impoverishment, annexation by Nazi Germany and the Holocaust. A company of 40 actors represent each generation of the family in this epic, but intimate play.
 
 Filmed live on stage in London’s West End, ‘Tom Stoppard’s masterpiece is magnificent’ (Independent) and should not be missed.
