About Spotlight Theatre Company

Our mission is to encourage, support and promote outstanding musical theatre experiences for local performers and audiences at a cost that is affordable to the community.

To Achieve This


We provide persons of all ages and capabilities with an opportunity to develop their talent both on stage and off, by providing education, training, guidance and experience to help foster and encourage an appreciation and knowledge of the performing arts.


We reach out to various community groups -- students, the elderly, the disabled, etc. to attend and be part of our cast membership, stimulating public awareness and interest in the value of theatre by presenting opportunities for the appreciation of local artistic achievements.


We strive to present theatrical performances that are as affordable as possible to our community, offering discounts to groups, seniors and children.

Everyone is welcomed to participate in our productions.  No individual will be refused admission, membership or participatory involvement based on race, color, creed, physical disability, sex, sexual orientation, marital status or national origin.


We currently have a membership of people ages six through sixty from areas such as Westchester and Putnam counties.  Our commitment to the communities we serve, to audiences and to our members will be to provide outstanding quality performances and leadership.  We believe our continued commitment in teaching the various disciplines mentioned to our members and to sustain a goal of excellence is consistent with this fundamental strategy.


Spotlight Theatre was founded by Pat Concilio and John T Leonard at the Church of the Holy Spirit in Cortlandt Manor, NY, with the Broadway musical Godspell. Relocated to the Tom Thumb Campus also as a Dinner Theatre in Mohegan Lake, NY, for ten years.  Spotlight Theatre moved to the Schoolhouse Theatre in Croton Falls, NY, and now happy in their new home at the Clearview School - Julie Harris Theatre in Briarcliff Manor, NY.  We stand by our commitment of offering our community the best Broadway hit musicals at affordable prices.
