SPOTLIGHT (10 × 10 in).jpg

You're Invited!
July 10, 2022

Celebrating 84 years of theatre in Highlands, Mountain Theatre Company’s Spotlight Benefit is guaranteed to be an event you won't want to miss! The evening will include elegant dining at the Highlands Falls Country Club, interactive entertainment, and a one night only performance by Mountain Theatre Company artists.

This unique "Interactive Entertainment Benefit'' is unlike any other, featuring pop-up musical performances, a Dancing With the Playhouse Stars competition, visual art created live during the event by local artist Carol Misner, silent and live auctions, Community Spotlight Award presentations, and much more! Executive chef Shawn Olah has curated a multi-course dinner inspired by our 2022 Mainstage Season that will tantalize the taste buds. Join us as we raise a glass and raise support for Mountain Theatre Company and our future on the Plateau!

Spotlight serves as Mountain Theatre Company’s most important fundraising event of the year. All proceeds will provide crucial support to every aspect of our work including high quality productions on our Highlands Playhouse stage, programming, operations, and our youth and community outreach programs.
