Snow Cancellation Procedures
 In the event that there is a large amount of snow accumulation on a class or rehearsal day, Spotlight, under most circumstances, will still hold class or rehearsal.  Spotlight wants all families, teachers, patrons to be safe and encourage them to make a decision about attending based upon what is good for them.
Some specifics: 
-  Spotlight will close class if the facility, we are using, is closing and cannot use the building, or if their parking lot will not be plowed for sufficient parking.
-  If weather conditions are at a treacherous level as to warrant cancelation.
-  If Spotlight does cancel a class, there will not be any make-ups, refunds, or teacher pay for class that was missed.
-  Spotlight will post cancelations on the spotlight website under “latest news” by 3:00pm. AC’s will also post on their callboards, facebook or any other means in which they normally contact families.

Welcome to our New Director of Education

Spotlight Youth Theater is proud to announce that Ryan Simpson has accepted the position of Director of Education. Ryan grew up through the program as a student in McHenry County and went on to pursue a degree in Musical Theater at Illinois Wesleyan. After receiving his BFA, he was able to cultivate a career as an actor on the East Coast working primarily with Theater at Monmouth in Maine. While in Maine, Ryan’s heart was always back here with Spotlight, and he would find his way back to direct several shows with us over the years. We are thrilled to have Ryan back here with Spotlight full time and look forward to how his experience and expertise will help grow Spotlight Youth Theater’s education program!
