SpotLight on Kids
Southwestern Wisconsin's Premiere Youth Theatre Training and Production Company
We are a not-for-profit Performing Arts Company. We are actors, singers, dancers, and storytellers. We paint scenery, build sets, and make costumes. We learn that a lot of people working together can create a theatrical production (it's almost like magic) and sometimes we get an extra bonus - new friends!
SOK's office and teaching studio are located at the address above (in the Olde Towne Mall). SpotLight on Kids' programs are open to all people regardless of race, ethnicity, disabilities, and financial status. Scholarships and work-study programs are open to all workshop and class participants.
We offer several group acting/theater classes throughout the year.
The adult off-shoot of SpotLight On Kids, footlights productions, was created to provide a theatrical outlet for adults in the greater Rock County community. Although both SOK and footlights pride themselves on producing high-quality and thought-provoking work, footlights' shows are meant for the mature audience, while SOK focuses on material suitable for the whole family.
S. Peter Roang Scholarship Fund established for SpotLight on Kids
With the generous support of Basics Natural Foods in Janesville, SpotLight on Kids has established an ongoing scholarship fund in memory of Peter Roang. An Edgerton native and life-long resident of Rock County, Peter was a tremendous supporter of and frequent participant in the performing arts.
This very special scholarship fund will be used to help children of all ages get involved and stay involved in the arts. We welcome contributions to the fund, which may be made as follows:
