Berea, KY – The Spotlight Playhouse is thrilled to announce the upcoming performance of PRESS START, a captivating musical set in the bright, pixelated world of video games. Directed by Daesha Miller, with Bailey Smith as the assistant director, and Letha Hembree as the musical director, this family-friendly show will feature the talented students of the Spotlight Acting School, aged 4 to 11.
