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.
YOU'RE A GOOD MAN,
Charles Schulz's beloved comic comes to life in Clark Gesner's classic musical, You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown. The whole gang is here: bossy Lucy is hopelessly in love with piano prodigy Schroeder who doesn't give her the time of day, perfectionist Sally is still mocking blanket-toting Linus, Snoopy is in the doghouse, and "blockhead," himself, Charlie Brown, is in rare form. Brief vignettes span the months from Valentine's Day to Beethoven Day, from wild optimism to utter despair. In this revised version, with additional music and lyrics by Andrew Lippa and dialogue by Michael Mayer, the sweet, joyful innocence of the Peanuts gang is maintained, but a fresh insouciance and playfulness is revealed. The new script features two new songs, particularly funny dialogue, and new, catchy orchestrations. Whether you're keen to fly with the Red Baron, moon over the Moonlight Sonata, or just do your best to find "Happiness," You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown is a crowd-pleasing classic.
