Welcome To Our Website!
Abrams Spotlight Productions, Inc. is a non-profit community theatre organization formed January 2003. Since 2007 we have been presenting three plays per year in our home, The Byng Community Theater. The 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. Please come and visit us at our next show!
Audition For Our Next Show:
Our next production will be The Saga of the Prospector's Daughter or She Was Only a Miner's Minor, by Pat Cook.
Here's a hilarious melodrama spoof whose oddball characters seemingly ad lib their way through the wildest plot ever to come down the pike. Lovely, innocent Constance Purdy is about to lose her home to that villain-about-town, Wiley Schlink. Will hero Monroe Mannerly ride to the rescue in time? Will her long-lost prospector father show up and save the day? These questions aren't really answered because we're laughing too hard at the sheriff who has a mortgage on her own jail, a medicine man who ends up in a dress, and a saloon-smashing suffragette whose ax works great on cuticles. Add a piano player with an attitude and a grizzly old prospector/narrator who'd like a different ending to the play, and you get some idea of folks who populate this fool's gold rush town.
Auditions will be held on May 1 & 2, 2013 - 6:00p-8:00p at The Byng Community Theater, 5852 Maple Street, Abrams. Actors age 13 and older are welcome to audition.
