Sleeping Beauty

Love is in the air with this beautifully staged marionette production, written, created and performed one man by Artistic Director, Robert Brock, using the familiar Tchaikovsky ballet score.”Sleeping Beauty” is an audience favorite, particularly with our grown-ups who appreciate the humor and get the Diamond Fairy AKA Carol Channing. Our shows are appropriate for children who can sit quietly for 35 minutes. Attendance by children under the age of two years is not recommended. Everyone, regardless of age, is required to purchase a ticket. If a child becomes noisy, the adult is asked to take the child out of the theatre.
This allows the audience to enjoy the show without interruption.

The Playboy of the Western World: An Irish Comedy

Directed by Melissa Hill Grande

One night, a scruffy young stranger, Christy Mahon, stumbles into Michael James Flaherty’s public house on the wild coast of County Mayo in Ireland. After much hemming and hawing, Christy eventually claims he is a decent lad on the run after killing his father. Enjoying the bold story, the locals welcome Christy as a hero, and Flaherty’s barmaid daughter Pegeen Mike falls for him, much to the dismay of her betrothed. What will happen when the truth comes out?

Scandalous in its time, the first performance in 1907 led to riots as Irish nationalists viewed the play to be an insult against morality and Ireland.

“(A) timeless comedy…saucy and hilarious” – The New York Times

Equivalent to a PG-13 movie rating

The Playboy of the Western World

Venue: Hermann Fine Arts Center, Marietta College – 500 Butler Street, Marietta, OH, USA

Date: Jan 31, 2020, to Feb 8, 2020 (5 Performances)


Full of chart-topping songs like the international hit “Day by Day”, Godspell follows Jesus Christ and a small group of people as they act out his story and his parables using a wide variety of games, storytelling techniques and a hefty dose of comic timing. Dissolving hauntingly into the Last Supper and the Crucifixion, Jesus’ messages of kindness, tolerance and love come vibrantly to life. Injected with contemporary references and dazzling new arrangements, this masterful retelling of the original continues to touch audiences.

Date: From Apr 3, 2020, To Apr 11, 2020 (5 Performances)

It’s A Wonderful Life

It’s a Wonderful Life is the heart-warming saga of George Bailey, the Everyman from the small town of Bedford Falls, whose dreams of escape and adventure have been repeatedly quashed by notions of family obligation and civic duty. This sparkling and magical play has all of your favorite characters: George and Mary, Mother Bailey, Uncle Billy, Violet and of course, the Scrooge-like villain Mr. Potter. It’s a Wonderful Life not only celebrates the season, it also celebrates the American philosophy of life: that hard work, fair play, and the love and support of family and community will be rewarded.

This is the 9th year this show is being produced at Spotlight Studios!
