About Us

Established in 2017, Lincoln-Way Theatre Guild produced many successful productions and supported charitable causes throughout the community. As we look to 2021, our Governing Board is excited to produce a full season of diverse theatrical and musical productions under the new name of Spotlight Arts Collective. The future vision of Spotlight includes a wide array of performing and fine arts events expanding past our theatrical roots. The creative endeavors of Spotlight will continue to raise money for charities, scholarships, and other philanthropic pursuits in the community.

Spotlight Arts Collective is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization #81-5459866
