Virtually Together: A 2020 Spotlight Tribute will air live on Tuesday, July 28 at 7 p.m.
Virtually Together celebrates the accomplishments of high school students from across Minnesota. The event will honor Spotlight Education schools, seniors, Triple Threat finalists and recipients of the Community Engagement Award, Theatre Educator Award, Triple Threat Broadway Experience, and our inaugural honors in Technical Theatre Excellence.
All year, high school students work tirelessly on their craft, attending Spotlight Education masterclasses, rehearsing, performing, and engaging with teaching artists to receive feedback on their high school productions. Their work with Hennepin Theatre Trust’s Spotlight programming builds confidence, empathy, community and knowledge of musical theater for nearly 8,000 students in more than 100 high schools across the state. While that work typically culminates in spring musicals, recitals, Spotlight Showcase, and more, this year those events have been canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
We intended to share this virtual event with you on June 9th, but chose to postpone its airing in order to stand with our community against systemic racism and institutional oppression in our community.
Join us as we rally around Spotlight students to show our support while enjoying delightfully funny, upbeat and touching performances.
