A Non-Profit Community Theatre Organization
Abrams Spotlight Productions, Inc. is a non-profit community theatre organization formed January 2003. Since 2007 we have been presenting three shows per year in our home, The Byng Community Theater. Please come and visit us at our next show!
Welcome To Our Website!
The Byng Community Theater was formerly the St. Louis Catholic Church in Abrams and we have done much to update the facility to make it performance-ready. We have installed a stage, lighting, a small dressing room, costume and props storage, and converted the vestibule area into a concession stand. We have also made use of existing office space by making one the Box Office with a ticket window and the other a sewing/costume area. There are changes for the better taking place all the time. Our organization and the theater has become popular with Abrams and the surrounding communities. We have been involving children from age four and adults of all ages in acting, singing and dancing. We have also been training young adults to perform the lighting, sound, and backstage duties. We feel we are promoting the arts in young and old alike. Taking part in the productions has been wonderful for all involved and we have built many friendships through our involvement.
Once Upon a Mattress
If you thought you knew the story of 'The Princess and The Pea,' you may be in for a walloping surprise! Did you know, for instance, that Princess Winnifred actually swam the moat to reach Prince Dauntless the Drab? Or that Lady Larken's love for Sir Harry provided a rather compelling reason that she reach the bridal altar post haste? Or that, in fact, it wasn't the pea at all that caused the princess a sleepless night? Carried on a wave of wonderful songs, by turns hilarious and raucous, romantic and melodic, this rollicking spin on the familiar classic of royal courtship and comeuppance provides for some side-splitting shenanigans. Chances are you'll never look at fairy tales quite the same way again.
