Spotlight Youth Theatre Group is a fun, and enjoyable theatre group for children aged 8-18. The group teaches children how to develop their acting, singing and dancing, through carefully structured rehearsals and performances.

We rehearse every Wednesday at 4.30pm until 7.00pm at the McGrigor Hall, Frinton on Sea, with additional tune-up rehearsals on Monday from 4.30 to 6.00pm and put on two shows per year at the prestigious Princes Theatre.

The group is volunteer operated and overseen by Clare who is the Group Director and has experience in dancing and performing, Viv and Lydia who are our show performance directors, and Molly our senior assistant, who each help with all aspects of group and show production.  Together they all bring experience and creativity to bring out the very best from our students.

In the background, Warren, who has television experience in production and script writing delivers the scripts, and creates our marketing materials and website.

Spotlight produce original, funny scripts, perfect for the stage, but also perform some classics too with a traditional pantomime the pinnacle of our year around Christmas time.

The children too also play an important part in how our productions are structured, and we give them the freedom to let us know how much or how little they want to perform in the shows, ensuring they are always comfortable and confident whilst on stage and during show rehearsals.

After each show children are presented with a keepsake trophy and certificate at our awards ceremony, with individual awards also given for individual or group excellence.
