Spotlight is a non profit that exists because of and for our community. We are individuals that have organized ourselves and said there is a need for good children's theatre. A company where no child is cut or left out and where the arts and creativity can thrive and bring amazing talented people together to lift the hopes and dreams of those that participate and those that watch the shows.
Spotlight Kids Theatre would not be possible without the welcomed support of our community friends and local businesses. Our board is made up of talented members of the North Denver Metro area, these shows are funded by community minded individuals and businesses - people who love the arts and love kids and have a passion to see dreams fulfilled on stage and off. We are ALWAYS looking for great people to get involved. If you have a passion for kids or the arts, contact us today!
