Spotlight On Proudly Announces The Next Great American Playwright Festival

The very best productions from the past two festivals have been selected to return for 3-4 performances in this one week festival. This festival will be a showcase for the best that Spotlight On has to offer to producers and backers in the hope of securing a move to a longer run on Broadway or Off-Broadway.

The Next Great Playwright Festival will culminate with the Spotlight On Awards Celebration which honors the excellence of the artists involved in this year's Spotlight On Festivals.

Keep checking this site for the complete schedule and descriptions of the shows involved.

This year Spotlight On produced 74 events (counting one-act plays: over 100)!! Can Broadway say that? Our awards voters have had a tough time deciding on a select few. This was truly our best year for Quality. The Awards Ceremony will take place on Monday, August 25. 6pm for cocktails and hors d'oeuvres and 7pm for the ceremony. This year's ceremony promises lots of entertainment as well as announcing of the winners. Tickets for the ceremony will be $20. Tickets for this event always sell out; and we are limited for seats. So order soon. If you are a nominee you are limited to 3 tickets per order (we will start a "waiting list" for orders beyond 3). If you are not a nominee but would like to attend we hold the limit to 2 per order. There are also a limited number of Industry seats available (e-mail calthorprod@aol.com for industry reservations).
