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!
