1st Company (Ages 7-9) & 2nd Company (Ages 10-18)

1st Company (Ages 7-9) & 2nd Company (Ages 10-18)

Spotlight Kids‘ newest Holiday season will bring an original Spotlight musical written by: Chris Churches and Jen Trostel.

The Nativity…The Night Hope Was Born!

For all kids ages 7-18. This is a humorous, yet touching, re-telling of our beloved Nativity. Two paralleling stories of Virginia and Jose overcoming great odds to give birth to a beautiful baby girl “Hope” on Christmas Eve in a beautiful B&B in Philadelphia…. All the while Mary and Joseph are on a journey of their own, ending up in a stable, with the newborn baby, wrapped in swaddling clothes.

We will need lots of kids of all ages who love to sing and dance and act and can bring this heartwarming original musical to life!

Auditions will be in August, Register here!
