Who says the theatre isn’t for everyone? If you’ve ever felt that live performances were beyond your reach, The Spotlight Playhouse in Berea, KY, is set to change that notion this August with their “Pay What You Can” Fridays. Now, experiencing the enchantment of the theatre might cost you as little as a dollar!
Kicking off this initiative is the production of Louisa May Alcott’s timeless classic, “Little Women”, presented by The Bluegrass Players. Performances are scheduled for August 4 and 5 at 8:00 pm, August 6 at 2:00 pm, and August 11 and 12 at 8:00 pm, with the Friday shows inviting patrons to pay what they can afford for a night of high-quality entertainment.
Whether you’re a regular theatregoer or a first-timer, this heartfelt story of the March sisters’ journey from childhood to maturity during the American Civil War will captivate you. The play, directed by Chad Hembree and adapted by Scott Davidson, delivers a powerful narrative full of love, resilience, and personal discovery.
The “Pay What You Can” program aims to make the performing arts accessible to the wider community, debunking the myth that theatre is an exclusive or costly pastime. This initiative will continue throughout the Spotlight’s 20th season, so make the most of it.
The Spotlight Playhouse is conveniently located at 214 Richmond Road in Berea, KY. Tickets can be purchased online at The Spotlight Playhouse or by calling 859-756-0011.
