Mission Statement & Purpose

The Spotlight Drama Club seeks to provide interested students with opportunities for hands-on education and participation in theater. The club aims to encourage creative self-expression, artistry, and outside-of-the-box thinking through classes, workshops and productions that reinforce the educational goals of the college.  It strives to foster an appreciation of all performing arts and offers opportunities for artistic and academic growth.  Membership is open to all students with an interest in promoting the performing arts on campus and in the community


Each year, Spotlight produces a minimum of three full-length plays of high literary and entertainment value.  Each is performed at The Center for Education and Performing Arts (CEPA) in Pell City and at least one is staged on other campuses.  Performance and technical positions are open to all students in good academic standing.  Follow us on Facebook for updates regarding auditions, performances and other activities.
